The Princeton Review says that if people want to learn how to start their own business, one of the best schools to go to is the University of Arizona.

The company's new list ranking college entrepreneurship programs in the U.S. has Arizona in the top 20.

UA's McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship program ranked number 17 overall, with it’s graduate program ranked at 14 among graduate programs.

"It was such a great opportunity to be able to learn from the teachers in the program,” said Samantha Meis, who finished the program in 2012 before starting her coffee subscription company Mistobox.

“Not only are (the professors) former entrepreneurs, but they’re also angel investors, so we got to learn from the entrepreneur and the investor standpoint," she said. "I can’t think of a more valuable experience than that.”

The program branches from the UA Eller College of Management, and focuses on teaching students to successfully turn an idea into a business.

Also, less than two weeks ago, U.S. News & World Report ranked the program sixth in the country.
