“Entrepreneurship Education” Research Group

Welcome to our research group!  We are part of the department of “Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management” in faculty VII, Economics and Management.

Our team has a research interest in any insights into how best to “prepare [an individual participant] for the all-embracing entrepreneurial role in newly founded, small and medium sized firms” (Klandt, 1994, p. 35). It is our vision to contribute to a continuous improvement of the education of future entre- (and intra-)preneurs.

Our research thus looks at educational influences, educational intentions and designs, as well as at educational performance of entrepreneurship education on a national, cross-national and international level.
