Why we chose it: Babson understands how busy and stressful the lives of entrepreneurs can be, so it offers evening courses that are specifically designed to give students enough time to do their work without interfering with their daily responsibilities. Babson also offers exec-ed classes geared to business owners. For example, a six-week course on opportunity recognition and exploration is a requirement that helps owners analyze acquisition and growth potential. Throughout the program, which typically lasts three and a half years, students have access to MBA courses dealing with different facets of entrepreneurship.
