Why we chose it: With celebrated innovation professor Donald Kuratko at the helm, Indiana is among a small number of schools that offer Ph.D.s in entrepreneurship. "In addition to having a faculty that is focused on entrepreneurship research, an Indiana education offers a good mix of corporate and startup entrepreneurship," says Roland Kidwell, associate professor at the University of Wyoming. Last year, Indiana held a symposium for women business owners.
