The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business’ MBA program and its undergraduate entrepreneurs are responsible for it being among the best entrepreneur-producing institutions worldwide, writes Ryan Mulligan for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The University City school in West Philadelphia ranked only one spot lower for producing undergraduate entrepreneurs, coming in fourth globally.
The university’s graduate programs lagged somewhat, coming in at No. 15 worldwide for producing successful entrepreneurs.
Another category where Wharton ranked high is in producing female founders. The school placed third for its MBA program, fourth for undergraduates, and at No. 11 for producing graduate female founders.
In the last decade, the school has produced 402 female founders. Combined, they raised $8.5 billion during that period.
Overall, Penn graduates of all three programs have raised $86.7 billion in capital over the last ten years.
