Abstract

In the global economy, increasingly interdependent national economies must contain innovative and change-oriented firms if they are to remain or become globally competitive. Sustained business growth and profitability requires managers to exercise the spirit of entrepreneurship. Accordingly we argue that entrepreneurship has come of age as a business ‘interdisciplinary’ subject area and should be at the heart of business education. But unlike most of the traditional business disciplines, entrepreneurship is less of a science and more of an art, such that the method of teaching entrepreneurship (and management education more generally), needs to be adapted to suit. Many business schools may be failing in their duty to develop the spirit of entrepreneurship, even in their entrepreneurship courses.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
