For people who are looking to get into business, the University of Maryland can serve as a good entry into the ambitious world of entrepreneurs. With an acceptance rate of around 48%, this university could potentially serve as a bit of a challenge to get into. But with a graduation rate at over 80% and tuition fees that average at less than $15,000, this can prove to be a worthwhile avenue for anyone who’s a goal oriented and aspiring entrepreneur.
