Who becomes an entrepreneur? - Series 3, Episode 8

Presented by Vicky Zhang, MSc Management & Strategy, 2016-2017.

Vicky draws upon Professor Edward Lazear's 'Balanced Skill theory', which identifies entrepreneurs as 'jack of all trades'; with a balanced, 'generalist' skill set. MBA data from Harvard Business School shows that entrepreneurs choose a balance of subjects at business school. They are more likely to come from a non-technical background, to have had a number of roles across their career and show willingness to take on risky roles in order to broaden their experience.
