EMU program makes Entrepreneur Magazine's top 10 list

YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University has been named one of the top 10 schools for entrepreneurship emphasis in the April 2005 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine.

EMU was the only school in Michigan to make the list for entrepreneurship emphasis.

This is the third year Entrepreneur Magazine has ranked entrepreneur programs and the first time EMU has made the list.

The magazine ranks schools in three categories, including: comprehensive (offering the widest variety of resources); entrepreneurship emphasis (offering a smaller number of entrepreneurship courses); and limited curriculum (offering a limited number of courses).

Other schools in the top 10 for entrepreneurship emphasis are: Belmont (Tenn.), Bradley (Ill.), Dayton (Ohio), Drexel (Penn.), Loyola Marymount (Calif.), Missouri-Kansas City, Montana State at Bozeman, Purdue (Ind.) and Worcester Polytechnic (Mass.).

EMU’s Center for Entrepreneurship, created in 2000, was established to educate, encourage and support students in understanding how to successfully start and operate new business ventures and to advance their enterprise. The center is housed in EMU’s College of Business. For additional information, go to [www.emich.edu/public/cob/entrepreneur/].

Eastern Michigan University is a public comprehensive university that offers programs in the arts, sciences and professions. EMU prepares students with the intellectual skills and practical experiences to succeed in their careers and lives, and to be better citizens.
