Why it's worthy: Second-year student Joel Serface, 29, thinks it's the best college for entrepreneurs in the world. He's president of the MIT Venture Capital & Investment Club, which helps students learn how to find--and spend--capital for their start-ups.
Crystal Trexel, 23, is a big fan of the classes. She especially enjoyed "Product Design and Development," which brought together MBA-ers, engineering students and the industrial design crowd so teams of students could create a new product from conception to prototype. Be aware: You'll enjoy yourself more at MIT if your start-up is technology-based.
