Why we chose it: Michigan is a very large institution, but the way in which its entrepreneurship programs are organized makes it feel like a small place - students can actually interact with professors, observes John Wholihan, dean of Loyola Marymount University's College of Business Administration. Michigan's student-directed Wolverine Venture Fund is comprised of 18 MBA candidates. Last year, they invested in four promising companies launched at the school. Michigan also grants outstanding students the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, which includes a $1,000 cash award. The business plan competition pays $15,000 to the winner.
