For some aspiring entrepreneurs, business school is like protective bubble wrap. Students get to leverage the experiences of faculty and alumni to test their ideas. Prize money doled out at business plan competitions allows for experimentation. And the support of student entrepreneurship circles may take some of the sting out of pursuing a solo endeavor. But do some schools provide more support than others when it comes to starting a business?

Bloomberg Businessweek asked each school ranked among our top 30 MBA programs to show us what they’ve got when it comes to supporting student entrepreneurs. This list is a compilation of those resources.

The schools are ordered according to our original MBA ranking. Of course, limiting the list to top 30 schools leaves out several with well-regarded entrepreneurship programs, including Babson College’s Olin Graduate School of Business. And several schools—Michigan State’s Broad College of Business, Emory’s Goizueta Business School, and Brigham Young’s Marriott School of Management—either did not supply all the necessary information or did not meet our deadline.

On the slides that follow, money available via school-sponsored entrepreneurship competitions may include the value of non-cash prizes.
