Entrepreneurship in the Classroom

Peter G. Klein, a professor at the University of Missouri and blogger at Organizations and Markets (recommended) posted his syllabus for a PhD seminar on entrepreneurship. It is an interesting mix of classics and newer readings. So you get current work from Zoltan Acs and Scott Shane and true classics, like the underrated work of Richard Cantillon. Perhaps it is trying to cover too much though? Entrepreneurship should really be treated as its own field, like industrial organization, and covered in two semesters over the year. Luckily for us, that is how it is treated at Mason (PUBP 834, 835.)
