The Visiting Scholars Program is an important component of the Entrepreneurship Division. It offers a chance for Faculty and Visiting Scholars to collaborate on research publications and teaching materials.
This program builds teamwork and cross-school collaboration among faculty and staff which results in academic partnerships in research, case writing and other publications. Visiting Scholars have the opportunity to be engaged in the life of the school and participate in classes and work with students during their visit.
