Overview

Do entrepreneurship training programs serve as effective interventions in national and regional economies? The authors (of Dundalk Institute of Technology, Ireland and Queen's U., Northern Ireland) explore that question and related issues of entrepreneurial personalities and the relative merits of different types of programs in Europe. After reviewing the theoretical basis underlying the study of entrepreneurship, they compare programs and present the results of a small longitudinal study tracking individual trainees views and experiences. Future research directions are then recommended. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
