ILR is the preeminent school in the world focused on work, labor and employment. This is reflected in our approach to entrepreneurship where we consider entrepreneurs as workers who do a unique and important job, entrepreneurs as employers who create jobs for others, and entrepreneurs as creative change agents who catalyze innovation in industries and communities. We do not directly train students to become entrepreneurs; rather, we offer a broad historical and social scientific perspective on entrepreneurship. Discussions about the history of capitalism, the evolution of the employment relationship, the nature of organizations, and the psychology of work and workers help students gain a deep understanding the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Our approach has helped ILR students and alumni to identify and successfully pursue entrepreneurial opportunities. ILRies all over the world have built thriving organizations that provide good jobs, benefit communities, and offer valuable products and services.
