Best for social entrepreneurs

Many entrepreneurs aim to give back to society while running a profit-making venture. These schools have found innovative ways to help students achieve that goal.

Why we chose it: Second-year MBA students are free to take interdisciplinary social entrepreneurship electives, such as Entrepreneurship and Educational Reform. The course gives business students the chance to share a classroom with their peers from a range of Harvard graduate programs. There are six core courses in social entrepreneurship, as well as more than 15 supplementary courses offered through the business and other graduate schools, including the Kennedy School of Government. Many initiatives, including the Social Enterprise Conference, are student-run. The HBS Leadership Fellows post-graduate program arranges one-year stints for students in leading non-profit and public sector organizations. "The Fellows Program opens up a huge range of career possibilities that the students never considered," says Social Enterprise Initiative director Laura Moon.
