Expanding the Geographic Scope of University Entrepreneurship Research: Theoretical Justification and Empirical Evidence

Academic Article


  • University entrepreneurship has grown dramatically since the early 1980s. This has produced a commensurate increase in research on the subject by management scholars. Although researchers have learned a great deal about university entrepreneurship, this area of research suffers from a lack geographic breadth. This lack of geographic breadth is increasingly untenable given the maturity of the field and the dramatically increasing rates of university research in countries not well studied in past research. This article lays out theoretical and empirical justifications for expanding the geographic scope of university entrepreneurship research and offers concrete suggestions for how researchers can accomplish this.
