The ranking included only 10 schools, six of which are located in the United States. USD’s business program came in behind Stanford and MIT but ahead of the Harvard in this ranking.
“In the U.S., it is a face-off between California and Massachusetts for the title of the most entrepreneurial state, with three schools from each featuring in the top 10,” the Financial Times wrote.
The ranking was based on the percentage of graduates who created their own company, the percentage of companies still operating at the end of 2014, whether it was the founder’s main source of income, and how the school helped set things up.
Of USD’s alumni surveyed by the Financial Times, 34 percent had started their own businesses.
