Why we chose it: The Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, founded in 1971, surrounds the core academics with other learning and networking options. "It has an impressive list of non-course activities, and puts a lot of resources into mentoring students," says RPI professor Phillip Phan. On its annual networking day, alumni return to campus to catch up with one another and meet aspiring student entrepreneurs. The Graduate Technology Alliance unites the Marshall School of Business, the Keck School of Medicine, and the Viterbi School of Engineering in order to foster new ideas through the Center for Technology Commercialization.
