Westmont Magazine A Good Place for Entrepreneurs
Westmont is listed among the “Best Colleges in America to Study Entrepreneurship” by Irvine-based Entrepreneur magazine. The feature story in the April edition featuring the top-ranked programs was co-written by David Newton, Westmont professor of entrepreneurial finance. Newton’s company, Santa Barbara-based TechKnowledge Point Corp., did the research.
Nearly 400 programs were ranked in three categories: comprehensive programs, entrepreneurship emphasis programs, and limited curriculum programs, based upon resources, faculty, course offerings, degrees, student body, alumni, research centers and other initiatives.
Westmont is ranked in the first quartile of limited curriculum programs, which includes 75 institutions. The first quartile contains the University of Connecticut, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Old Dominion University, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Santa Clara University.
