Business schools repositioning themselves as startup incubators

In an effort to adapt to the startup trend and grow enrollment, business schools are beginning to more loudly tout their resources for entrepreneurs such as access to connections, experience and a place where it might be safe to fail.

While Stanford Business School has ready access to the nearby venture capital firms located on famed Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park, Calif., other schools like Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard in the Boston area, and University of Chicago have developed incubator-like programs and, like Stanford, have seen students develop successful startups.
