Entrepreneurship education in the research-intensive entrepreneurial university

This paper examines the evolution of the entrepreneurship education initiative of a single research-intensive institution—the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom—and the ways in which that initiative has or has not contributed to the broader entrepreneurial and commercial engagement objectives of the university. The Manchester case suggests that research-intensive universities wishing to bring entrepreneurship education and knowledge commercialisation and commodification into effective and beneficial alignment—that is, in a broader model of the “entrepreneurial university” than characterizes conventional thinking today—face significant challenges that require determined strategies to overcome.
