Routledge-ISBE Masters in Entrepreneurship

Series Editor: Susan Marlow, Janine Swail

The study of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial behaviour now occupies a central position within the contemporary field of business and management. The contribution of entrepreneurs to global economic performance is now broadly recognised and valued, with public policy clearly focused on encouraging and supporting innovative and entrepreneurial behaviour. Reflecting this trend, academic institutions are actively developing their delivery of entrepreneurship education throughout the curriculum to embed entrepreneurial attitudes and thinking within the next generation of graduates. The Routledge-ISBE Masters Series in Entrepreneurship responds to this growing market for entrepreneurship education through the provision of relatively short, highly specialist but accessible textbooks on a range of entrepreneurship topics. Collectively, these texts will form a significant resource base for those studying entrepreneurship at the postgraduate level, helping them to gain an in-depth understanding of contemporary entrepreneurial concepts.

Each text is specially commissioned to provide essential reading for a core entrepreneurship topic within taught postgraduate programmes. In this regard, students following advanced programmes of study in an entrepreneurship related area, as well as those encountering entrepreneurship for the first time as part of their postgraduate programme in a non-cognate area (e.g. postgraduate Science or Engineering may benefit from the series. Innovative pedagogical features will be used throughout the texts, where appropriate, and the practical importance of theoretical concepts will be clearly illustrated.
