Contenus de l'unité d'enseignement

This seminar is a collaboration of HEC Liège, ESSEC, emLyon and IESEG. It aims to equip doctoral students with theoretical and methodological skills for doing research in the field of social entrepreneurship and philanthropy. Based on the critical analysis of theoretical and empirical articles, students will get acquainted with several research avenues in the field and their connections with broader approaches in economics, entrepreneurship and organization theory. They will then be asked to locate their own research project regarding the extant literature and to discuss their upcoming research agenda with the scholars and the other students. The seminar is integrated within the range of dynamics on social entrepreneurship and philanthropy in which both institutions are engaged and is connected to international research networks in these domains such as EMES (social enterprise/entrepreneurship) and ERNOP (philanthropy).
