Faculty Expertise

Entrepreneurship Faculty

Management is a large department including faculty members in such diverse areas as human resource management, international business, and health administration.  Though doctoral students focus on entrepreneurship, they can draw on faculty expertise in the other areas if it fits their entrepreneurship research.  Students interested in meta-analysis, for example, might work with Michael Harari, and students interested in leadership might work with Ethlyn Williams.  For a complete list of the Management faculty, check the department's faculty page.  There, you can click on each faculty member's name or photo to get to their individual web page in order to learn details about their background and interests. 

The faculty likely to work most closely with our doctoral students are listed below.  You can get to their individual web pages by clicking on their names.
