Intensive Workshop Overview

The intensive workshop will be of value to those seeking an introduction to the developing knowledge base of entrepreneurship as well as those who wish to update or otherwise expand their knowledge of the field. The content of the workshop is divided into five, half-day sessions:
  • Historical Overview of the Field of Entrepreneurship
  • The Entrepreneur: Individual-level Issues in the Entrepreneurship Theory and Research
  • Entrepreneurial Processes: Opportunity Recognition, Evaluation, and Exploitation
  • Corporate Entrepreneurship/Innovation/Venturing
  • Entrepreneurship and Regional Economic/Public Policy Issues
  • International Entrepreneurship and Social Entrepreneurship
The intensive workshop is designed as an active learning experience in which attendees will be provided (and are expected to have read) several overview-type papers on the various session themes prior to the individual sessions.

Indiana University’s World Class Entrepreneurship Program

The Entrepreneurship Program at Indiana University has developed one of the world’s largest entrepreneurship faculties with some the most recognized entrepreneurship thought leaders.

Combining a great curriculum with the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation that has offices in the Kelley School of Business, the Indiana University Medical School, the Indiana University School of Law, the Indiana College of Arts & Sciences, as well as affiliations with the IU Jacobs School of Music, and the School of Informatics, our programs provide students with a wide range of classroom and experiential opportunities to discover and develop the “entrepreneurial perspective” throughout the entire campus.

The Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation is the focal point for all entrepreneurship activities emanating from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University-Bloomington. The Entrepreneurship Curriculum includes an undergraduate major in entrepreneurship, an MBA in Entrepreneurship, a Ph.D. in Entrepreneurship, and an Entrepreneurship Academy for MBA students.

The academic programs have earned national rankings including: #1 undergraduate (public institution) and #1 graduate ranking (public institution) for entrepreneurship in U.S. News & World Report; top national undergraduate and graduate program rankings in Fortune Small Business magazine; as well as the National Model Entrepreneurship Program at the Ph.D. level and the National Model Entrepreneurship Program at the MBA level.
