Entrepreneurial spirit is the heart that pumps the blood of Utah's economy. And our universities are adding more programs to increase the amount of entrepreneurial training among their students.
The Jon Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University recently received a six million dollar endowment from alum Jeffrey Clark and his wife to establish the Jeffrey D. Clark Center for Entrepreneurship. This will fund programs that foster entrepreneurial learning and success.
At the University of Utah, the David Eccles School of Business has started offering an entrepreneurship certificate to undergraduate students, regardless of their major. Earning this certification allows students to learn the basics of starting their own company.
Princeton Review has also ranked the David Eccles School of Business in the top 25 schools for entrepreneurship for the past three years. The graduate program in particular ranked 23rd among more than two thousand institutions across the United States.
