Gibb, Allan (2012)
Publisher: Co-Action Publishing
Journal: Annals of Innovation & Entrepreneurship
Languages: English
Types: Article
Subjects: entrepreneurhip and enterprise education; Entrepreneurial University; strategy; synergistic potential
This article aims to provide a framework for exploration of a strategic approach to entrepreneurial university development. It draws on earlier reviews by the author of the entrepreneurial concept and of the now considerable global literature on the theme of the entrepreneurial university, although there is a strong focus in this article on the UK. It also draws lessons from practice in exploring with several universities the potential for creating strategic synergy between existing activities in the institution not all of which would be labelled entrepreneurial in the conventional sense. Each of these key activities are briefly reviewed in turn and presented as a basis for action in drawing together a strategy for the university.Keywords: entrepreneurhip and enterprise education; Entrepreneurial University; strategy; synergistic potential(Published: 24 February 2012)Citation: Annals of Innovation & Entrepreneurship 2012, 3: 16742 - DOI: 10.3402/aie.v3i0.16742
