Why we chose it: Want to spend the summer on 8,200 acres in the rolling foothills of a California coastal mountain range? You might consider Stanford's four-week Summer Institute for Entrepreneurship, which is open to graduate students from any university who are not concentrating in business. Faculty members from the renowned business school teach courses such as finance, management, negotiation, and political economy. Those who aren't in it for the money can learn how to launch a nonprofit.
