Each student should be able to communicate, both verbally and in
writing, current knowledge, critical evaluations and new ideas in
entrepreneurship topics developed in this course.
Course Description:
In putting together the reading list, I have sought to provide a balance
between breadth and depth of the topics that can be included in
entrepreneurship. But this is not as easy as it sounds. Entrepreneurship
can cover so many topics. The first eight readings each week are required
and any after the first eight are therefore optional readings. However, I am
going to have you also read Scott Shane’s book. Shane, S. 2004. A
general theory of entrepreneurship: The individual-opportunity nexus.
Edward Elgar Publishing, Inc., Northampton, MA.
This course provides an overview of entrepreneurship research. It
examines important managerial issues in entrepreneurship from different
theoretical perspectives, including strategic management, organization
theory, economic sociology, and economics. The course is designed to
cover multiple levels of analysis of the field. Beyond the basic
understanding of the principal theories, the goal is develop interest for
rigorous empirical research in entrepreneurship.
In a nutshell, the sine qua non of entrepreneurship is the “opportunity.” This
is the thing that separates entrepreneurship from other fields of study. So
the readings are intended to help you to understand how an individual (or an
organization) goes about identifying an opportunity and pursuing it to
Please note that many of the articles will be accessible online through the
BusinessSource database provided through the library.
Course Objectives:
Format and Evaluation:
This course is intended to provide students with a detailed, in depth
coverage of selected topics in the entrepreneurship literature. Additionally,
the course will emphasize the following objectives:
Because this is a directed/independent study, you will be required to read
the chapters from Shane’s book as well as eight of the readings (the first
eight listed are required and the remaining ones are optional readings). I
would like for each of you to complete two summaries per week and
exchange them (via e-mail – make sure you CC me!). Additionally, I will
require a term paper.
Each student should develop an understanding of and appreciation
for the concepts and research in these topic areas.
Each student should be able to critically review academic and
practitioner research and develop constructive reviews of such
Each student should be able to formulate ideas that advance theory
or research in the field.
Course Requirements: There are two course requirements, a paper,
and summaries of the readings.
Research Proposal/Conceptual paper
A major paper is due at the end of the semester (summer) that can
take two forms. One alternative is to write a conceptual manuscript
that could be submitted to the Academy of Management Review,
after further revision. Certainly the quality should be adequate to
send to a national meeting. This is not just a term paper, but rather
a quality manuscript that has been substantially refined. This paper
must be an original work and also must be relevant to the topics
covered in the course. Alternative two is to develop a major
research proposal that would become an empirical paper. I realize
that it is often impractical to obtain a dataset during the semester.
So this paper would be a regular empirical paper without the actual
data analysis. This proposal would include justification of the
research question, theoretical background, literature review of
research on the question (including your value added contribution),
and research design to test the question. Naturally, if you already
have the data, you can complete the empirical paper during the
semester. Please note that the outline of the paper is due at the
end of the 5th week of the course. The first draft of your paper is
due at the end of the 10th week of the course. Your final draft is
due at the end of the final week of readings.
Papers should not exceed 30 pages of text (exclusive of
references, exhibits, tables, figures, and references). My hope for
you is that you could have a paper that could be submitted to an Aor better journal at the end of the summer or in early fall.
Article Summaries: Each student will complete 2 article
summaries each week (depending on the number of
readings and the number of students in the class). These
summaries will be from one to two pages (single spaced) in
length, typed, and will have the following format:
Title of reading: complete title and citation.
Summarized by: student’s name.
Purpose of reading: this section should describe how this
reading fits in a broader stream of research, why it was
written, what the fundamental objective of the reading is, etc.
Theoretical argument: summarize theoretical arguments of
the reading, its basic assumptions, its major propositions, etc.
Methodology: this section should briefly summarize the
research methods (if any) used.
Results and conclusions: this section should summarize any
empirical results, any theoretical conclusions, implications of
the reading, etc.
