If you are looking for a ranking of undergraduate programs for business then, you can go to US News and World Reports website, as they have an objective ranking for every program across the nation. Most career counselors can also provide guidance and some have software programs that help you with your college selection process. Ensure you get your FAFSA (fafsa.ed.gov) form completed well in advance to ensure you get max amount of federal student aid. Student loans are great avenue to invest in yourself.

Hi Laila,
Congratulations on knowing what you would like to do! I might suggest before selecting a school, you talk to other entrepreneurs in your field and discuss their business. Where did they go to school? What courses do they think are most relevant to being successful in this field? For the type of business you are looking to run, would local licensing requirements also need to be met in addition to business courses? I think with the answers to these questions from an entrepreneur in your field, it might help focus your choices.
Once you have that list, contact these schools and see if a visit is possible (I know Covid is getting in the way) or a virtual visit.
See if you can speak with a current student who has similar goals to yours to understand courses and the advantages/disadvantages to that school. Speak with an admissions counselor for schools you are interested to be aware of scholarships and eligibility requirements.

Best of luck!!

You may also want to consider business schools with entrepreneurship programs. Often part of the course work is putting together a business plan and even launching a small business. This can offer additional support and guidance from faculty and build your network while in school.
