Why we chose it: A decade before most universities even thought about integrating entrepreneurship across campuses, David Ben Daniel at Cornell was doing it - by developing the design of the university-wide Entrepreneurship@Cornell program. "Cornell built a visionary program that cross-listed courses so that students of all majors were taking entrepreneurship classes," says Jerome Katz, chair of entrepreneurship at Saint Louis University. Today, Cornell provides its students and others at universities across the country with rich media resources such as videos and podcasts of presentations and lectures. Its e-Clips Collection supplies students, educators, and entrepreneurs with real-world views from experts on business, entrepreneurship, and leadership topics. One expert is Scott Belsky, co-founder and former president of sportswear maker Live Big Enterprises. Another is Sheila Johnson, co-founder of BET, the first cable TV network aimed at African-American viewers.
