by Alan Hunt
U.S. News & World Report has spotlighted Baylor University as one of the nation's top graduate business schools for entrepreneurs. The publication ranks Baylor 11th in its newly released 1998 listing.
A total of 33 schools nationwide are ranked in the entrepreneurship part of the survey. The magazine also ranked graduate business schools in the categories of accounting, finance, non-profit organizations, management, information systems, international business, general management, marketing, production/operations, and health services administration. Schools were also ranked on MBA programs.
Baylor's Hankamer School of Business was among the first in the nation to establish an entrepreneurship center in 1977. The school's entrepreneurship program was ranked fifth in the nation last year in the U.S. News & World Report internet rankings of "Top Undergraduate Business Departments." Success magazine also recently ranked Baylor as one of the nation's top 25 business schools for entrepreneurs.
David Allen, director of Hankamer's John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship, said, "We are always extremely proud when a national publication recognizes the achievements of any part of Baylor University, particularly the entrepreneurship area. I think it speaks to a number of things. Baylor University is always striving for excellence in all areas, and in the School of Business this goal is clearly reflected in the supportive leadership and administration, the faculty, and in the quality of students we attract."
