Entrepreneurship PhD Faculty

External Faculty and Distinguished Lecturers

Our external faculty and distinguished lecturers come from universities around the world to teach in their particular areas of expertise.  These renowned scholars were invited to teach in the program precisely because of their outstanding scholarship in the area in which they teach. However, teaching is not their only contribution to our program.  Students may continue to carry on their professional relationships with external faculty to the extent that they share common research interests.  In addition, external faculty may also serve on dissertation committees. Courses taught by our external faculty are generally intensively taught during a one week time period. Courses taught by UofL faculty are generally taught as regular semester-long classes.
