Universities compete for future startup leaders with focus on entrepreneurship - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

In 2013, more than 400,000 students took entrepreneurship classes and training through their higher education institutions, up significantly in recent decades as universities have begun to compete for students looking at higher education as a path toward a startup dream. The New York Times reports that Rice, Harvard, NYU, Northwestern, and Princeton are among those that have opened entrepreneurship centers and labs in the last few years to draw students with resources to support their innovative tendencies. While the resources seem to be attracting students, critics say colleges and universities are not doing enough to teach them the fundamentals of actually running and maintaining a business, leaving them unprepared for the startup world.
