Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Podcast Entrepreneurship Education (Monday)

Guest: Dr. Ingrid Wakkee


Throughout Global Entrepreneurship Week, listen to this podcast every morning about entrepreneurship, education and the challenges that exist in an era of economic transformation. A guest in this episode is Dr. Ingrid Wakkee - Professor of entrepreneurship at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences has a research program into the role of entrepreneurship in economic and social changes in the Amsterdam metropolitan region. We do this by working with stakeholders to investigate how entrepreneurs anticipate social developments and changes, and which new business models this leads to. We start this research with the training of the entrepreneur, who can respond responsively to new challenges in the field of digitization, globalization and sustainability. The question is what the training and the aforementioned challenges mean for their attitude and behavior.

These issues are also central to the podcasts included in the Global Entrepreneurship Week. Every day an expert is given the floor to reflect on these challenges.

This Monday we kick off this podcast series with Dr. Ingrid Wakkee - lecturer in entrepreneurship at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. This morning we will discuss the connection between education and research, the themes that are put on the agenda based on social developments and their translation to education.
