The Indiana University Kelley School of Business has received the 2016 Award for Exceptional Contributions in Entrepreneurship Research. While accepting the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers honor on the school’s behalf, entrepreneurship chair and Inside INdiana Business contributor Donald "Dr. K" Kuratko called IU Kelley research "not only extensive but also transformative."
Dr. K, who has served for years on the organization’s executive committee, was also awarded the Entrepreneurship Program Directors’ Legacy Award at the consortium’s annual conference September 30 and October 1 in Rochester, New York.
Kuratko is also executive and academic director of the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in the Kelley School and said "IU’s Kelley School of Business stands as a world leader in entrepreneurship. Having been recognized as one of the most powerful nodes of entrepreneurship by the journal Scientometrics, our faculty list reads like a virtual ‘who’s who’ of entrepreneurial thought leadership."
IU’s recognition was judged by a peer jury of entrepreneurship professors based on the research agenda of the faculty, published research, journal management, research grants, impact factors of the publications and the profile of each faculty member.
