MBA in Entrepreneurship with Startup Incubator


Hey guys, is anybody aware of a good MBA program with a focus on entrepreneurship, which offers a startup incubator as part of the program? I've read about IE Business School, but I'd really like to stay in the US... I know that Cal and Stanford are good choices for entrepreneurship but it doesn't seem like they have incubator facilities. Suggestions?

Stanford has a program called StartX Accelerator: http://startx.stanford.edu/accelerator

Besides that look at
- MIT Sloan
- Virginia Darden
- UC Irvine Paul Merage
- Missouri Trulaske
- Wake Forest

Great suggestions. Also, Columbia offers a startup lab, which is an incubator of sorts, during the summer session.

Lots of international schools have incubators, so don't overlook Europe: London, Manchester and EDHEC do, and ESADE, Imperial and most obviously EM Lyon are strong for that.

Thanks! I'd like to say in the US, but I've heard good things about London's startup scene. Plus, it wouldn't be bad to do an MBA at LBS...

Hey nice discussion... I am also interesting in doing an MBA that offers a startup ecosystem, but I am only looking at top 10 schools, so how which is better: Stanford, Berkeley, or Columbia?

These three schools are fairly comparable. Of course, Stanford's (and Berkeley's, really) proximity to Silicon Valley means better access to angel and venture capital; although, depending on what kind of business you'd like to build, these resources can be found in NYC as well.

However, keep in mind that "entrepreneurship" is ultimately still not a common career path for MBAs, even with all the hype that's currently attached to it.
