California Students Embrace Entrepreneur Label

Part of the challenge in promoting an entrepreneurial culture on campuses throughout the U.S. and around the world is getting students from all disciplines to embrace the title and role of entrepreneur. According to a new ranking by Forbes, that isn’t a problem in California.

The upcoming issue of Forbes includes its 2014 list of most entrepreneurial research universities — based on the percentage of “alumni and students who have identified themselves as founders and business owners on LinkedIn.”

Graduates of Stanford University self-identify as entrepreneurs more than any other school in the U.S. Five of the top 10 on the list are from California. UC Berkely (#3), UCLA (#5), California Institute of Technology (#6) and Pepperdine University (#9).

A full list of the top 50 is available on the Forbes website.
