Miami University: No. 7 Entrepreneurship Program in the World

For the 16th year in a row, the Miami University John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship is ranked in the Top 10 among public undergraduate institutions by Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine!

This is the Altman Institutes highest ranking yet, which we believes emphasizes the exceptional value of their approach, and the supportive atmosphere that fosters the entrepreneurial spirit within the Miami University ecosystem.

What was once a single entrepreneurship course offered in 1992 now includes today: 50+ courses; 12 co-curricular programs; the John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship; three Entrepreneurship Centers (the Page Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and the Center for L.I.F.E.); two student-led investment funds; a funded internship program; a startup accelerator program; World Creativity & Innovation Week/Day (WCIW/D); and many others.

Impact of the Program:

  • 4,164 = Total number of undergraduate students taking entrepreneurship class offerings in 2022-23.

  • 530 = # of students enrolled as a co-major, co-minor or completing a certificate in 2022-23.
