This book is a provocative study of how American-led entrepreneurship transformed business education in Europe. Starting with Silicon Valley's high technology businesses, and examining business schools in France, Germany, and the Czech Republic, Robert Locke shows how management education shifted in response to an increasingly entrepreneurial business context. His work is an important contribution that will be of interest to academics, students, and business professionals concerned with current thought on what should be taught and emphasized in contemporary business education.Read more
