Miami Entrepreneurship Department Named Winner of 2024 Model Program Award

On January 13th, Miami University's John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship and the Department of Entrepreneurship won the 2024 Model Program Award from USASBE- United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship. The USASBE Model Program Award is awarded annually to the top entrepreneurship program in the nation and recognizes a university entrepreneurship program that provides "comprehensive, bold, high-quality educational programs that train future generations of entrepreneurs."

The judges noted Miami's success at connecting the entrepreneurship program with Divisions across campus while implementing curricular and co-curricular programs that engage students from every undergraduate major across campus and the impact of the Program's practice-based, immersive learning approach to undergraduate entrepreneurship education in preparing tomorrow’s entrepreneurial leaders to be “job ready, day one.” Miami's Entrepreneurship Program joins a select list of university entrepreneurship programs to win the award, a list that includes Indiana University - Kelley School of Business, Virginia Tech Pamplin College of Business, Iowa State University - Ivy College of Business, Syracuse University - Martin J. Whitman School of Management, and the UMKC Henry W. Bloch School of Management, among others.
