The Ivey Business School welcomed over 300 academics and doctoral students from around the world for the 34th Annual Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC) in early June, 2014.
The Babson Conference is considered the world’s premier conference for academic research in entrepreneurship. This year’s edition included 236 summaries presented on topics ranging from high-tech and social media entrepreneurship to the impact of age, experience and gender on entrepreneurship and the challenges of family business succession.
The 2014 conference, sponsored by the Pierre L. Morrissette Institute for Entrepreneurship and the Entrepreneurship Cross-Enterprise Leadership Centre, marked Babson’s return to Canada for the first time in 26 years and confirmed Ivey as a global brand in entrepreneurship research and education.
