Why we chose it: Berkeley students started the Global Social Venture Competition in 1999. The contest gives MBA students worldwide the opportunity to network with professionals and each other, while developing sustainable business plans focused on giving back. "Berkeley zeroes in on global opportunities that target major social problems," says Jerome Engel, executive director of Berkeley's Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Students may join clubs such as Net Impact, Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative, and Students for a Greener Berkeley, all of which promote environmentalism.
