Basic knowledge of linear regression models and of entrepreneurial finance concepts.


The course aims at achieving the following primary learning outcomes: (a) foster the ability
to critically review research with a particular focus on research design and methodological
issues; (b) stimulate the exploration of novel and testable research propositions; (c) offer
useful methodological tools for the preparation of the dissertation and future research.


The course is designed to provide an overview of research design and quantitative
methods prominent in cutting edge research in entrepreneurial finance. To that end, a
selected number of papers will be examined and discussed. Both cross-sectional and
