A lot of MBAs start out wanting to become entrepreneurs, but then there are 100,000 reasons why many don't... What can be done to make it more viable for more MBAs to take the plunge?
I think that shift is certainly already happening (due to catalysts of the broader startup movement including cloud storage, tech outsourcing, more funding options), but education (loosely defined) around these realities within entrepreneurship is still needed to make them tangible. That you can make fairly comparable post-MBA salary at a funded startup is still not commonly understood. The opportunity to disrupt major industries where MBAs tend to have backgrounds (marketing, professional services, education) are well within reach. This kind of awareness needs to be filtered down through the administration via curriculum and formal programs (e.g. InSITE), which is very much still a work in progress at most schools
