Special Issue "Fostering Student Entrepreneurship: Nascent and Active Entrepreneurs in Universities"

"Administrative Sciences", an international open access journal, is open for contributions

Message from the Guest Editors, Emilio Paolucci, Giuliano Sansone, and Eleonora Fiore
Dear Colleagues,
University students (from any field of study and education level) are becoming more and more interested in entrepreneurship, and some of them are willing to create their own businesses during their studies. Even if several studies have analyzed entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurial intentions, and academic entrepreneurship, only a few studies have focused their attention on the emergent topic of venture creation by students. However, recent studies explain that ventures created by students are a significant contributor to university entrepreneurship.
By addressing student entrepreneurship, this Special Issue would like to investigate the entrepreneurial activities carried out by students during their university career or soon after graduation. This Special Issue also aims to analyze how the university (through different activities such as entrepreneurship education) may support and foster the venture creation of university students.

Contributions expected are based on the literature review, field experiences of specific programs, qualitative and quantitative analysis of students’ and professors’ feedback and surveys, case studies, and available databases.
