Why we chose it: The Stern School of Business is viewed as a trailblazer in designing programs for teaching socially responsible and economically viable entrepreneurship, based on research by assistant professor Jeffrey A. Robinson. NYU offers six MBA courses in social entrepreneurship, including one on corporate branding. Stern's business plan competition has a social track, and a new Venture Mentoring Program pairs students with leaders in social ventures. "There is a heightened social awareness at NYU," says dean F. Thomas Cooley. "Part of my mission is to engage the university with the environment in which we live."
