Entrepreneurship and Society
2006/2007, Semester 2
NUS (University Scholars Programme)
Modular Credits: --
The goal of this course is to provide students with an overarching view of intellectual thought on the subject of entrepreneurship. This course examines the social, economic, cultural, ethnic, political, technological, organizational, and geographical conditions that give rise to new enterprises, and the societal consequences of the entrepreneurial activities. This course reviews entrepreneurship from various levels of analysis: the individual, organizational, industrial, organization field, and global levels. We first explore how, when, and where new businesses are likely to form, and what affects their relative chance of success. Then we investigate the societal consequences of entrepreneurial activities, and how diverse organizations affect social change in communities. The course encourages analytical integration of theory and its application to understanding real world events.
