Professor Peter Rosa visiting CeFEO

From April 26- May 3 we will have Professor Peter Rosa (University of Edinburgh) visiting JIBS/CeFEO.

During his time here he will give a research seminar entitled:

"The African Entrepreneurship Paradox: So Entrepreneurial yet so Unproductive?"

Date: April 27

Time: 15:00-17:00

Place: Board Room, Floor 7

The seminar critically reviews a prevalent view that despite high rates of entreprenurial activity in sub-Saharan African countries and the emergence of some influential and rich family businesses, the quality of entrepreneurship remains low and unproductive, and has made a minimal contribution to the significant recent growth of some countries.

Peter Rosa is in the Examining Committee at PhD Candidate Naveed Akhters dissertation defence, April 29, 2016.
