Baylor University
Baylor University
Waco, TX
Tuition: $22,220

Why we chose it: Historically Baptist Baylor preaches, "success with significance." Professor of Finance Bill Petty, who holds the W.W. Caruth Chair in Entrepreneurship, assigns "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" to students in his required entrepreneurial finance class. Honors students go through the Balance, Excellence, Scholarship and Team (BEST) program, which teaches how to reach non-financial life goals. Baylor Bears who choose the new Business Fellows major can create their own cross-disciplinary business degree. The only fixed requirement: a quarter of the student's courses must be in the business school.
