Exemplars in Entrepreneurship

Ronald K. Mitchell and Richard N. Dino

This path-breaking book gathers ‘best practices’ advice from the masters about how to achieve excellence in entrepreneurship research, how to create an outstanding research career and how to avoid the pitfalls that can sidetrack emerging scholars.
