Best business school for Entrepreneurship?

I have about 91 average so far . I am looking to apply to Business programs that are known for startup and entrepreneurship. My goal is to attend Uni and then start my own business after graduation. I have looked at programs like Schulich, Ivey, Rotman, Queens, etc but these programs are more focused on Accounting and Finance. I don't like the idea of paying huge tution just to attend top business schools (queens, ivey). Can anyone suggest any school  that offers good opportunity for startup and well known for their entrepreneurship program .

University is not about getting job after graduation...it's about gaining knowledge to apply it into real world.
 Plus the more knowledge, friends, network  in Uni = the better chance of you succeeding.
Uni is always a good qualification to have. Hopes this makes sense

Waterloo has excellent startup resources - but really just for technology. Otherwise I’d suggest just going to a top university to connect with the strong alumni base.

I agree with this! University of Waterloo and Waterloo in general has great amount of resources to help start-ups. Blackberry was founded there and a few other big Canadian companies were founded there too. I personally like Entrepreneurship a lot too and a part of the reason why I want to go to Waterloo is because the Velocity incubator at University of Waterloo is really good! University of Waterloo is also a science and math heavy school, so there a ton of people who have cool and innovative ideas but need someone in the business side to help them out and that is where people like us come in and work in a partnership.

I'd really suggest you look into BBA at Laurier! Waterloo is a great city for start-ups and the business program here is very general for the first 2/3 years before you have the option to specialize. There are tons of start-up clubs that you could join and work in executive positions for, as well as tons of networking events to start creating your own network.
Best of luck!

You want to become an entrepreneur by first putting yourself in tens of thousands of dollars in debt? Yeah, I don't think you even know the point of entrepreneurship. People who knew early on that this was what they wanted didn't even go to school. Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard and just created Facebook. No school can teach you to be an entrepreneur. What a joke in itself. Whether an idea, startup, or business is successful entirely depends on luck and sheer will. You don't need to go to school to be an entrepreneur, and I have a hard time seeing you as one if your first inkling is to blow 50-100k on a piece of paper that you don't even need.
