CSUSB named among top graduate schools for entrepreneurship


Cal State San Bernardino’s graduate program in entrepreneurship has been named among the best in the West and the nation in a new 2022 rankings from The Princeton Review.

CSUSB was listed as 15th in the top 15 entrepreneurship programs in the West and 50th in the top entrepreneurship programs in the nation, according to the education service company. The rankings were also published in Entrepreneur magazine, the Princeton Review’s reporting partner since 2006.

Michael Stull, director of the School of Entrepreneurship at the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, said the listing is an acknowledgment of the school’s innovative programs and pioneering work of its faculty.

“The entrepreneurship program at Cal State San Bernardino has a long history of being an innovative leader in entrepreneurship education, and this current ranking is recognition that our approach educating future entrepreneurs is among the best in the field,” Stull said.

“As the only CSU program included in either the graduate program rankings for 2022, we are excited to be the No. 15 graduate program in the West and among the top 50 in the nation,” Stull said. “The School of Entrepreneurship and our Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship are truly a destination for students wanting to create an entrepreneurial future.”

Shanthi Srinivas, interim dean of the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, said “We are pleased with Princeton Review’s ranking, which is yet another affirmation of the outstanding quality of our entrepreneurship program. Congratulations to Mike Stull and all of the faculty, staff and students who have devoted their time and talent to make this a globally recognized program.”

The Princeton Review chose the schools for its 2022 graduate entrepreneurship rankings based on surveys with more than 60 questions conducted from June through August 2021 of nearly 300 colleges and universities that reported data about their entrepreneurship offerings.

“Since the mid-2000s when we first reported these ranking lists, student interest in entrepreneurship has grown dramatically, as has the commitment to entrepreneurship studies within higher education,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor in chief in a news release. “Equally impressive have been the extraordinary contributions of the business community to these programs. We heartily recommend the fine schools that made our entrepreneurship studies ranking lists this year. Their faculties are outstanding. Their programs have robust experiential components, and their students receive awesome mentoring and networking support that will serve them for years to come.”  

“The value of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking continues to grow in our daily lives,” said Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine said in a news release. “We’re now seeing Americans start businesses at the fastest rate in a decade. By sharing this list, we want to continue to provide the much-needed information that people are looking for to forge their path to entrepreneurship. This list is a valuable reference tool for where future leaders can attain the knowledge, community and training grounds to succeed on that path.”
