Abstract

The literature on academic entrepreneurship within business schools is limited and
fragmented. The purpose of this systematic literature review is to address this deficit
and to identify what business schools do to support academic entrepreneurship and to outline a future research agenda. Based on our systematic literature review we
identified three main themes that business schools do to support academic
entrepreneurship namely: entrepreneurial education; entrepreneurial networks; and
entrepreneurial ecosystems. Furthermore, we identified two further embryonic
themes, individual level factors and obstacles to entrepreneurship. Based on our
review and analysis we present some future avenues for research.
