Why we chose it: After receiving a $4.5 million Kaufman Grant to expand its entrepreneurship offerings, the University of Illinois hit the ground running in 2003. It doubled the amount of cross-disciplinary entrepreneurship courses to more than 75, spanning 32 departments. To learn how to integrate business principles into other areas of studies, faculty members go through a year of training in entrepreneurship education. Last year, graduate and undergraduate students launched 28 ventures, including a record label and a tech start-up built around a communication tool for disabled people. Illinois encourages graduate research in entrepreneurship; masters and Ph.D. students have examined such topics as creating a start-up's identity and the social and psychological makeup of entrepreneurs.
