The Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation undergraduate entrepreneurship program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City has been named the 2014 National Model Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Program by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE).

  • The program and Institute are housed within the new Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management.

According to the judges, "the Bloch School undergraduate program scored high in all of the categories, with a number of standout elements. They cited our Entrepreneurship Scholars (E-Scholars) program for its innovative approach, and the program’s proven influence on new-venture growth and development in the Kansas City region for its impact,” said Regnier Institute Managing Director Dr. John Norton.

The award continues the consistent recognition the Bloch School’s entrepreneurship programs have received over the past few years, including having both the undergraduate and graduate programs currently ranked among the top 20 in the nation by The Princeton Review, and UMKC’s designation as the No. 1 university in the world for innovation management research.

The USASBE award was based on seven basic criteria including:

  • innovation
  • quality
  • comprehensiveness
  • sustainability
  • transferability
  • depth of support
  • impact
