An Innovative Education
Re: Joseph Lassiter
White-haired and wearing thin-rimmed glasses, Lassiter specializes in entrepreneurial management at the Business School and serves as the Faculty Chair of the iLab ("You're supposed to rise when you say that," he jokes).
"Entrepreneurship is not a new thought at Harvard Business School," he states. After World War II, interest in the study of entrepreneurship intensified as Business School professors debated how to best teach it within a classroom setting. It's HBS Professor Howard H. Stevenson's definition of the term that is quoted high on one of the walls at the iLab in greeting: "Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity beyond resources currently controlled."
