  7. To save time, our suggestions … • www.eduventures.com • - perhaps the most comprehensive web site I've seen on the ed industry. News, company directories, trends, job announcements, etc. Excellent! • www.universitybusiness.com • - the web site for the best periodical I know of in the industry: University Business Magazine. Very well written articles on trends in higher education -- technology, tuition, training, faculty, HR, leadership, scholarship, entrepreneurial projects, public/private partnerships, etc. • www.mff.com • web site for the Milken Family Foundation site (yes, Michael Milken). Very comprehensive site, geared mainly toward K-12 issues. MFF is probably the most active (and best funded) not-for-profit out there right now looking for solutions to problems in education. • http://glef.org/ • The George Lucas Educational Foundation website. The e-resources link is worth noting. • http://www.edweek.com/ • Online version of the education newspaper. • http://biz.yahoo.com/n/y/y0009.html • Education news headlines from Yahoo! * Source: Monisha Kaplan, Charles Catalano, Kellogg Alums
