The seminar is intended for students who are developing their research in the field of entrepreneurship. The course content and assignments are designed in a way that both students starting their PhD research and advanced students working on Post Doc research plan are welcome to the course.
The objective of the course is to offer the students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with some of the recent theoretical themes in Entrepreneurship research and to identify interesting research questions related to these themes.
During the seminar, through readings and discussion, the students develop an understanding of the current research on entrepreneurship and emotions, opportunity processes and firm exit. These themes have recently drawn the attention of entrepreneurship scholars and offer interesting avenues for future research. These areas pose challenges for research and our class discussions will cover available study designs and data collection techniques, among other topics.
By the end of the course, the students should have a basic understanding of some of the recent theoretical discussions in entrepreneurship research. They should be able to identify interesting research questions related to these current research themes, and to design studies seeking to answer these questions. The course will also give students an opportunity to develop their existing research projects through presentations and feedback from the instructors and the audience.
The seminar will feature discussion of theoretical literature and presentations made by the students.
