The Princeton Review for Entrepreneur Magazine just came out with their annual entrepreneurship ranking for graduate programs and the Darden School of Business ranks #3. Amy Cosper, vice president and editor in chief at Entrepreneur notes:

The right education enhances and reinforces curiosity and creative thinking in entrepreneurs. This ranking provides a unique look at top schools that offer the type of training, encouragement and direction that nurtures entrepreneurial skills.”

Darden offers over 25 electives in entrepreneurship and innovation, awards over $1 million in entrepreneurship scholarships annually, and hosts numerous entrepreneurship conferences, competitions and events. Additionally, Darden’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership supports the Darden Business Incubator which supports selected students to start business ventures during the MBA program. In addition to approximately $13,000 for expenses, Incubator participants receive free office space, access to technological expertise and free legal services thanks to a new arrangement with the U.Va. School of Law and the Woods Rogers law firm.
