OSU School of Entrepreneurship Ranked Among the Top 10 Entrepreneurship Programs in the World


Oklahoma State University’s School of Entrepreneurship has yet again proved itself to be a school with a worldwide presence.

A study recently released by the M.J. Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University analyzed and ranked the research productivity of entrepreneurship schools worldwide; the School of Entrepreneurship at OSU came in at No. 10, behind such schools as Indiana University, Syracuse University and the University of North Carolina.

“It’s a great start for a young program,” said Michael Morris, N. Malone Mitchell chair and head of OSU’s School of Entrepreneurship. “It’s nice to have our work recognized, and being ranked so high is reinforcing.”
In the past year, the Spears School entrepreneurship professors have published more than 20 journal articles and research books on a variety of topics, including the ways successful entrepreneurs learn how to excel and the differences in the experience of founding a family compared to a non-family venture.

“Entrepreneurs are the innovators who are changing the world one venture at a time,” Morris said. “Our hope is to touch every student on campus with our message of dreaming and doing. Yet, these efforts must be coupled with scholarly work that advances how entrepreneurship is approached and facilitated. With what is in the research pipeline, I am hopeful we will climb up even further in the coming years.”
