This book is a provocative study of how American-led entrepreneurship transformed business education in Europe. Starting with Silicon Valley's high technology businesses, and examining business schools in France, Germany, and the Czech Republic, Robert Locke shows how management education shifted in response to an increasingly entrepreneurial business context. His work is an important contribution that will be of interest to academics, students, and business professionals concerned with current thought on what should be taught and emphasized in contemporary business education.

Review of the hardback: '... a thoughtful essay on the difficult terrain of academia and high-tech entrepreneurship.' Professor Les Hannah, Faculty of Economics, University of Tokyo Review of the hardback: 'The Entrepreneurial Shift is an impressive achievement and makes an outstanding contribution to the literature on management education. This book is a demonstration, based on an international study, that technology changes and American entrepreneurial culture play a key role in shaping educational systems both inside and outside the U.S.A.' Alain Fayolle, Professor of Entrepreneurship, E.M. Lyon and I.N.P. Grenoble, France Review of the hardback: 'A highly original account of the European response to the Silicon Valley phenomenon and the growth of entrepreneurial studies in American business schools. The book opens up a new dimension to debates about the Americanization of European business and management education.' Geoffrey Jones, Joseph C. Wilson Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School Review of the hardback: 'The study is well researched and written. It is a pioneering work because it looks at entrepreneurship, education, and technological development at the same time, and on a comparative basis in different countries. It should be obligatory reading for those interested in these subjects.' Management Decision
