WELLESLEY, Mass., Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Babson College has been named one of the top colleges for entrepreneurship by Her Campus in its 2013 College Rankings.
Ranked #4 in "The Future Zuckerbergs" category, Babson College was praised by Her Campus for its hands-on approach to entrepreneurial learning and the college's roster of successful entrepreneurs in the workforce such as Arthur Blank, the co-founder of The Home Depot, and William D. Green, former CEO of Accenture.
"At Babson, you become an entrepreneur whether you like it or not," says Her Campus.
The ranking highlights Babson's Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship course - a required first year course for all students in which they are given $3000 to start their own company and donate all profits to charity.
"This excellent hands-on approach is probably one reason Forbes named the school an "an entrepreneurial powerhouse," says Her Campus.
Her Campus quotes Babson Senior Kevin Liu, saying "Babson is a melting pot for creativity and innovation--fueling our #1 in our entrepreneurship ranking for nearly 20 years!"
Babson was ranked alongside top schools such as Rhode Island School of Design, MIT, Harvard, and Stanford.
A No. 1 leader in entrepreneurship for 20 consecutive years, Babson College is globally recognized and aims to provide students with a top-flight business education blending innovative, integrated and applied business and liberal arts programs with curricular and co-curricular learning experiences.
Her Campus is the #1 online community for college women.
