Duke’s top-10 ranking is part of a forward-looking list that represents alumni who are ready to become entrepreneurs, in addition to repeat entrepreneurs, the report says.
Babson College, a private business school in Massachusetts, ranked No. 1, and Princeton University and Brown University trailed Duke in the rankings at No. 11 and No. 12 respectively.
As for methodology, FounderDating looked at the overall size of a school’s current student body and the number of people who have applied to join FounderDating as a cofounder who attended that school. Schools with fewer than 3,000 currently enrolled students and/or schools that have one specialty (i.e. art/design schools, MBA-only) were excluded, in part because it wouldn’t represent an apples-to-apples comparison.
