Why we chose it: RPI's entire entrepreneurship program is designed to engage engineers, explains Lou Marino, associate professor of strategic management at the University of Alabama. This September, the business school will introduce Pathfinder, a three-year MBA track that will offer courses and work experience to enterprising engineering and science graduates from any undergraduate institution. RPI also plans to rollout a new nine-month masters degree in management that will attract RPI undergrads from all over the institute who are interested in commercializing technology. Students can take management and science courses that aim to prepare them to launch a tech start-up at the end of the program.
