Research Topics

There are three major directions research has taken among the entrepreneurship group at Saint Louis University. These include bankruptcy prediction via benchmarking, the technology conceptualizations of owners , and international entrepreneurship and the Internet.

For the rundown on the complexity theory approach, which has considered issues of geographic dispersion, human resource retention, and sampling frame development, click here . I am also working on a piece looking at consolidation, primarily from a teaching perspective. The draft is available here . For the other papers, look below.
