PhD defence: Theodor Lucian Vladasel

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Theodor Lucian Vladasel has submitted his thesis entitled: Embracing Heterogeneity: Essays in Entrepreneurship and Human Capital

 
Thursday, September 5, 2019 - 14:00 to 16:00

How does heterogeneity in individual and firm characteristics explain differences in occupational choice and organizational performance? This thesis considers variations in human capital profiles and organizational forms to understand the effects of family and community background on unincorporated and incorporated entrepreneurship entry, persistence, and income on the one hand, and the ability of social enterprises to motivate employee action through pay for performance tools on the other. Using econometric techniques and experimental approaches, the three essays that comprise this thesis provide novel insights into the determinants of different types of entrepreneurship and the interaction of mission and monetary incentives in social enterprises.
