Entrepreneurship in American colleges has been increasing substantially over the past few decades, according to this infographic by Kingworks Creative.
It all started in 1947, when Harvard offered the very first MBA entrepreneurship course: Management of New Enterprise. In 1975, there were 104 colleges/universities with entrepreneurial courses. By 1986, there were 590, by 1998 there were 1400 and by the end of 2013, there were more than 2000 colleges and universities with courses in entrepreneurship. Some of the top undergraduate entrepreneurial schools include the likes of Syracuse University, Baylor and the University of Southern California. More and more schools are working to add or improve on their entrepreneurship programs, and more students than ever before are seeking out these programs to be the future entrepreneurs of America.
