Project: Entrepreneurship Education in Business Schools – France

The Entrepreneurship Education in Business Schools: Best practices and recommendations project aims to address the gap between the growing number of entrepreneurship initiatives in Business Schools in Europe and the lack of guidance on how to support this type of education. In addition, it attempts to promote processes of creative research and innovation that must be the base of the future of business education. Among others, the main goal of this project is to provide guidelines for business schools on improving entrepreneurship education.

The first phase of the project, led by Chartered ABS and Asociación Española de Escuelas de Dirección de Empresa (AEEDE), covered literature review, the methodology of the research, and focused on Spain. The second phase is now presenting the research on French Business Schools, which was led by Chapitre des Écoles de Management of Cenferénce des Grandes Écoles (CGE). It looks into the practices and methods of the Entrepreneurship education in three business schools in France: South Champagne Business School (SCBS), EDC de Paris, and Toulouse Business School (TBS). The methodology is based on a qualitative approach, including secondary data collection and qualitative interviews with entrepreneurship managers from the Business Schools.

The findings of the research as well as recommendations for entrepreneurship education are noted in the recent project report.

To better understand the entrepreneurship education practices in Europe, currently, the third part of the project addressing Business Schools in Italy is ongoing under the lead of Associazione Italiana per la Formazione Manageriale (ASFOR).

Project: Management and Leadership Development Needs in Dynamic Societies

A recent CEEMAN-led project, Management and Leadership Development Needs in Dynamic Societies, which was supported by EQUAL, aimed to enhance the collaborative approach between education and business sector. The research focused on one of Business Schools’ stakeholders: the business sector and its needs in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The societal, political and economic changes in Central and Eastern Europe and South Africa in the past 25 years led to numerous business challenges for companies in the region. CEEMAN has recently concluded an exploratory study on the major current and future summons, which conducted by Danica Purg, Alenka Braček Lalić and Jennifer Pope. The authors address the following challenges: demographic trends and political instability, the fourth industrial revolution, changing customers’ behaviours and needs and a more competitive environment.

The study analyses the companies’ responses in order to identify the skills gap and consequently formulates recommendations on how management education can help to close that gap.

Findings of the two-year exploratory study were published by Springer in a book titled Business and Society – Making Management Education Relevant for the 21st Century.

The book also contains country chapters to dig deeper into the particular issues and needs in the participating countries. Featuring an extensive research study, it offers a unique perspective on the business challenges and developmental needs of companies in emerging and recently emerged economies, and on the missing links between those needs and management education.

The findings of the research as well as recommendations both for management education and the business sector have been published by Springer. For more information, please refer to CEEMAN.
