UNC Charlotte Ranked Among Top 10 for Entrepreneurship Research

Provided by Charlotte Regional Business Alliance on August 17, 2022 —

Research and publication on entrepreneurship by faculty members in UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business has led to the University’s designation among the top 10 institutions on Texas Christian University’s 2022 Global University Entrepreneurship Productivity Rankings.

TCU’s list focused on 350 university programs worldwide, tracking publication in the field’s premier scholarly journals during the past five years: the Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice and Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal. These journals typically accept only 5% to 10% of submissions, including only the most novel and interesting research.

“The Belk College of Business has assembled elite faculty in entrepreneurship, who are conducting high-quality, relevant research in this highly specialized area of focus,” Jennifer Troyer, dean of the Belk College of Business, said. “This allows us not only to provide our students with the latest knowledge and understanding of how to be effective entrepreneurs — but to offer more in entrepreneurship expertise, according to the new TCU rankings, than other business schools in the state.”
