Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine bestow honorable mention Upon KSU in annual survey and highlights the Cox Family Enterprise Center

KENNESAW‚ Ga. (Oct. 29‚ 2007) −– The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine have recognized Kennesaw State University in their fifth−annual listing of the top 50 entrepreneurial education programs in the nation. The university received an honorable mention (as did Harvard University and Stanford University) in this prestigious survey‚ and the Cox Family Enterprise Center also was highlighted.

"We are honored that Kennesaw State University was recognized as having one of the best entrepreneurship programs in the country and are proud of the role the Cox Family Enterprise Center has played in earning that distinction‚" said Joe Astrachan‚ executive director for the Cox Family Enterprise Center. "This latest ranking‚ along with also recently being recognized as one of 'America’s Best Colleges for Entrepreneurs' by Fortune Small Business Magazine‚ supports our mission to offer the most qualified professors and the most up−to−date best business practices."

The Cox Family Enterprise Center‚ part of the Michael J. Coles College of Business‚ is dedicated to the research‚ education and recognition of family businesses. The center supports and guides family businesses through its innovative programming‚ outreach and scientific research. One of the world's leading institutions for family business research‚ the Cox Family Enterprise Center has received numerous awards over the past 20 years for its scientific work. In September‚ the center celebrated its 60th anniversary and announced the launch of an executive MBA (EMBA) for families in business.

To develop this list‚ The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur surveyed more than 900 undergraduate and graduate schools about their offerings in entrepreneurship. The questions included in the ranking covered three basic areas: academics and requirements‚ based upon‚ for example‚ what types of degrees and courses the institutions offer; students and faculty‚ including what percentage of students were enrolled in entrepreneurship programs for the 2006−2007 academic year; and activities outside the classroom‚ analyzing such components as partnerships with other schools and noncurriculum−based activities and/or competitions.
