Why it's worthy: The Entrepreneur Lab offers beginning students opportunities to form teams and undertake consulting assignments with companies--mostly ones in a start-up incubator located near campus. Classes are reportedly first-rate. Graeme Alexander, 29, loved a class appropriately titled, "There Are No Rules." "I was surprised at how fluid deal-making is," says Alexander. "There is no formula. It's all about what two or more parties can agree on."
