The United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) named Ohio University’s Center for Entrepreneurship the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Emerging Entrepreneurship Program Award.  USASBE is nationally recognized as the premier association for entrepreneurship education and has ranked entrepreneurial programs since 1990.  

“Like the entrepreneurs we serve, this award reflects the big push we have all made.  Since 2011, the Center has invested in the hopes and dreams of faculty, students, startups and the community.  The outcomes are impactful, shared, and changing people's lives every day,” said Lynn Gellermann, executive director of the Center for Entrepreneurship.

Ohio University’s Center for Entrepreneurship, a partnership of the College of Business and the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, joins the winning ranks of premier programs including University of Tampa, University of South Florida St. Petersburg, University of North Carolina, Kansas State University, and the Brock School of Business at Samford University.

“The Excellence in Entrepreneurship Education Awards are extraordinarily competitive,” said Luke Pittaway, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship. “It is an honor to be recognized out of the hundreds of colleges and universities represented by the USASBE and reflects the great strides we’ve made in increasing the reach of entrepreneurial education at Ohio University.”
