Entrepreneurs often perceive a gap between research conducted in academia, and the practical problems that they face when building companies. As recognized by the AACSB—the accrediting body for Business Schools—this research/practice divide is not unique to the field of entrepreneurship. The research/practice divide likely exists across most fields of study within research-based business schools. 

Fortunately, scholars are experimenting with different approaches to bridge the research/practice divide, and EIX has been covering this topic. Below is a list of our articles to date on this issue.
