Posted in Test Prep on February 17, 2011 by

Recently, b-schools have begun to post a ton of great resources online to help aspiring MBA students learn about their offerings.

If you’re interested in learning more about entrepreneurship in business school, for example, check out this video from Michigan Ross, about the process three of their students went through to start a successful business while still in school.

The company, Husk Insulation, aims to transform agricultural waste in high-grade, affordable insulation for the refrigeration industry. The students went on to win the MIT Clean Energy Prize, a national student competition founded by MIT, the U.S. Department of Energy and utility NSTAR.

The video discusses some common struggles faced by entrepreneurs, as well as the many lessons the founders of Husk have learned along the way.
