Oikos Young Scholars Entrepreneurship Academy

The first oikos Young Scholars Entrepreneurship Academy provides PhD students in the field of Entrepreneurship, Management, Strategy and Sustainability a platform to present and discuss their ongoing research projects with fellow students and senior faculty.


Research on the role of Institutions, Entrepreneurship and Organisational Change for a fundamental reorientation towards achieving environmental, social and economic sustainability is a promising and challenging academic field. It calls for a multitude of methods, combination of disciplines and new research designs.
In 2010 we aim at attracting papers fostering new ideas and solutions with regard to how the corporate sector and civil society can contribute to overcoming key sustainability challenges. Feedback will be given by fellow students and three internationally well-reputed researchers:
  • Prof. Tina Dacin, E. Marie Shantz Professor of Strategy & Organizational Behavior Queen's School of Business, Ontario, Canada
  • Prof. Filipe Santos, Academic Director, INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Initiative, Fontainebleau, France
  • Prof. Mark Starik, Department Chair and Professor of Strategy & Public Policy, George Washington University, USA
The event aims to advance academic research, build networks across disciplinary boundaries and to prepare the ground for research that is highly relevant for theory and practical solutions for scaling up the pace of societal adaptation towards ecological boundaries of the planet.

The programme will encompass graduate student presentations, guest lectures, professional development roundtables, outdoor activities and social events. Participants have the opportunity to apply their insights and skills during a practitioner day including selected social innovation professionals, our partner WWF and The Hub Zurich at the brandnew Hub Zurich offices in Zurich.
