Florida Gulf Coast University is ranked 22nd on The Princeton Review’s and Entrepreneur magazine’s list of Top 50 Undergraduate School for Entrepreneurship Studies for 2022. After appearing on the list the last two years, jumping from 30th in 2020 to 29th in 2021, the program shot up seven spots, thanks in part to the debut of the 27,000-square-foot Lucas Hall that houses the Daveler & Kauanui School of Entrepreneurship.  

As of this fall, there are 537 students majoring in the program. Since 2016, more than 300 businesses were created by students taking program courses, earning nearly $12.6 million in total gross revenue, according to officials at FGCU.  

“I’m proud to see us climbing the ladder on The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine list,” said Sandra Kauanui, director of the entrepreneurship school, in a news release. “This helps to set us apart from other programs in Florida and beyond. With the new building up and running, this award is a nice crowning achievement to wrap up 2021.”  

FGCU was ranked just behind No. 21 Penn State University Park and No. 20 University of Utah on the list based on The Princeton Review’s summer 2021 survey of administrators at nearly 300 undergraduate and graduate schools offering entrepreneurship studies. The survey asked administrators more than 60 questions about their school’s commitment to entrepreneurship studies inside and outside the classroom. The Princeton Review analyzed more than 40 survey data points to determine the rankings. University of Houston topped the list.
