Why we chose it: When looking at the breadth of courses offered, Syracuse really comes out on top, says Kennesaw State Entrepreneurship Chair Richard Franza. Between the undergraduate and graduate schools, this upstate New York institution offers 50 courses in entrepreneurship each academic year. One popular choice is Dilemmas and Debates, which brings in a new panel of CEOs and entrepreneurs each week to discuss a different startup challenge. "Syracuse teaches students to step outside their comfort zone," says Louisiana Tech Professor Jon Pratt. Syracuse's South Side Innovation Center, an incubator for all ventures related to inner-city entrepreneurship, forces students to consider the social impact of starting a business.
