Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in Business Administration from Technical University Munich, Germany, and my MSc from Otto-Friedrich University Bamberg, Germany.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My research interests involve growth-related aspects of entrepreneurship, specifically international entrepreneurship, capability development, entrepreneurial networks and organizational culture development. My studies focus on individual-level constructs – including the role of individual managers’ experience, passion and social networks in entrepreneurial initiatives – as well as firm-level constructs, including the development of organizational identity in entrepreneurial ventures.
