Rice University has obtained a $1.5 million grant to study the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education. The research will focus on tech start up ventures. This has become the new “it” sector to study and, obviously, there is no empirical research to correlate business education and acumen with startup success.
This is an exciting opportunity for those who want to study education as well as, certainly, Rice, particularly given its recent ascent in the business school rankings. These are the types of developments we encourage you to keep looking out for as you finalize your list of target graduate schools.
