GBSN Entrepreneurs in Residence Learning Community

The Global Business School Network, in partnership with Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), is launching a new learning community of entrepreneurs in residence (EiR) programs. At any university, an EiR program provides a unique opportunity for students to learn from and engage directly with local business entrepreneurs. EiR programs are a vital part of entrepreneurship education as they support teaching, encourage creation and sharing of best practices, and promote more opportunities for research. This new sub-network will work to amplify these benefits of EiR programs by expanding international peer to peer sharing, enhancing the effectiveness, and improving the impact of EiR programs. Through this community, schools with existing EiR programs will work together to publish monthly articles and create exchange opportunities within the network.

The EiR sub-network will also support schools at the beginning of their EiR journey. In partnership with GBSN, LUMS will be offering two different tracks to schools looking to begin or accelerate their EiR program. Detailed below, these two opportunities, along with support from other EiR programs will enable schools to get their EiR programs up and running to begin contributing to the larger sub-network of EiR programs. Being part of this learning community will provide them access to mentorship, resources, and best practices to help grow and maintain their EiR Program.
