“After college, I plan on trying to create my own business or join a start-up. If those don’t work out, I know I can still find a great career with my degree.”

He definitely made a great choice. Not only is the Jones College ranked in the top 1.5% of business schools worldwide based on accreditations, ranked it as the 17th best college for aspiring entrepreneurs in 2017! And the Jones College has other impressive rankings as well.
