Exploring Social Issues in Entrepreneurship

Location: Weggis & Zurich, Switzerland

Date: 19-22 January, 2015

The fifth oikos Young Scholars Entrepreneurship Academy provides a unique platform for scholars in the field of entrepreneurship in the early stages of their careers. It will gather a maximum of 15 exceptional PhD candidates, post-docs and young faculty to advance academic research, expand networks, and build bridges into practice. The event includes paper development workshops, professional development roundtables, research talks and social activities – preferably outdoor – in the picturesque Swiss Alps.

Participants will benefit from presenting and discussing their work in progress with leading academics who will provide feedback and share advice about academic career and personal development. They will also have the opportunity to apply their expertise and skills in a HUB Challenge Lab in collaboration with the Impact Hub Zurich and Ashoka Switzerland. Feedback will be given by fellow participants as well as three international scholars:

  • Wendy K. Smith

Associate Professor of Management, University of Delaware, USA

  • Dror Etzion

Associate Professor of Strategy and Organization, McGill University, Canada

  • Claus D. Jacobs

Academy Chair; Professor of Strategy, Berne School of Management, Berne University of Applied Sciences & University of St. Gallen, Switzerland
