This volume is a provocative study of how American-led entrepreneurship transformed business education in Europe. Starting with Silicon Valley's high-technology businesses, and examining business schools in France, Germany and the Czech Republic, the book shows how management education shifted in response to an increasingly entrepreneurial business context. Traditionally, training focused on learning about existing models and how to use them to best advantage; there was little room to embrace continuous change. New technologies have been liberating, enhancing variety and change in European business schools. The educational emphasis has turned now to thinking 'outside the box'- embracing technological solutions, and creating organizations in which constant transformation is an everyday phenomenon. This study is an important contribution, and will be of interest to academics, students, and practitioners who are concerned with how and why business is and should be taught today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: '... a thoughtful essay on the difficult terrain of academia and high-tech entrepreneurship.' Professor Les Hannah, Faculty of Economics, University of Tokyo
Review of the hardback: 'The Entrepreneurial Shift is an impressive achievement and makes an outstanding contribution to the literature on management education. This book is a demonstration, based on an international study, that technology changes and American entrepreneurial culture play a key role in shaping educational systems both inside and outside the U.S.A.' Alain Fayolle, Professor of Entrepreneurship, E.M. Lyon and I.N.P. Grenoble, France
Review of the hardback: 'A highly original account of the European response to the Silicon Valley phenomenon and the growth of entrepreneurial studies in American business schools. The book opens up a new dimension to debates about the Americanization of European business and management education.' Geoffrey Jones, Joseph C. Wilson Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
Review of the hardback: 'The study is well researched and written. It is a pioneering work because it looks at entrepreneurship, education, and technological development at the same time, and on a comparative basis in different countries. It should be obligatory reading for those interested in these subjects.' Management Decision
