Entrepreneurship professor to help shape business ideas at Nottingham

The Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is further expanding its expertise thanks to the appointment of entrepreneurship expert Professor Dawn DeTienne.

Professor DeTienne is based at the University of Colorado and will be contributing to the Institute – which is part of Nottingham University Business School – through her role as visiting professor.

In this role, Prof DeTienne will help with undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, assist PhD students in developing their research, deliver seminar presentations to staff, students and the public and work with early career researchers to advise upon publication strategies.

This is a big coup for the University. Susan Marlow, Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Haydn Green Institute, said: “Dawn is recognised as leading researcher in the entrepreneurship field, she is a field editor of one of the leading US journals in the entrepreneurship field, is extensively published in US and European journals and has an extensive record of working collaboratively with early career researchers. We hope she might find opportunities to work with some of the HGI staff.”

Visiting professors bring a great deal to universities and that’s why Nottingham is keen to continue and expand its recruitment of professors from some of the world’s best universities.

Prof Marlow said: “They bring their extensive experience and a fresh perspective on research; they use their skills to offer guidance and advice to early career researchers and PhD students, a high profile figure contributing to UG & PG teaching and generate inter-institutional collaboration opportunities.”
