The University of Houston now has the number-one ranked undergraduate entrepreneurship program in the country, according to The Princeton Review.

This is the 14th straight top 10 ranking for the Cyvia and Melvyn Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship in the list compiled by The Princeton Review and published in Entrepreneur magazine.

"What we are trying to do is change the world by starting businesses," said Dave Cook, Director of the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship.

Cook said the program's success starts with its students, who are passionate about growing personally and professionally.

“We focus not just on business education, but on character," Cook said. "We want students to understand their values, know what their dreams are and be able to set goals to get them there."

Wolff Center students and graduates have started more than 1,200 businesses over the past decade, with over $268 million of funding.

"At the end of the program, it changes your life. You come out of this program understanding who you are, with the confidence to start your own deal and take on the world," Cook said.
