Brigham Young University and the University of Utah once again are being praised for their business school's efforts to encourage entrepreneurship.
The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine have included both on their Top 25 list of entrepreneurship programs.
BYU is listed third among graduate programs nationally, same as last year, while its undergraduate program is No. 6, up from No. 7 in 2011. This is the third year the two BYU programs have been in the Top 10.
The University of Utah's David Eccles School of Business also made the 2012 list with its graduate and undergraduate programs.
In 2011, the U.'s school debuted on the list for best undergraduate entrepreneurial programs at No. 16. This year, the ranking was No. 17 and it added laurels with the No. 15 ranking for its graduate program.
"Once again, our emphasis on offering real-world experience within our curriculum has earned the attention of this prestigious business publication," Taylor Randall, dean of the David Eccles School of Business, said in a statement.
The Princeton Review's rankings are based on surveys of administrators at nearly 2,000 schools. The surveys assessed each school's entrepreneurship offerings, including their commitment to fostering entrepreneurship inside and outside the classroom.
