PhD defence: Ahmad Barirani

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Ahmad Barirani has submitted his thesis entitled: Three Experimental Studies on Entrepreneurship

Friday, April 13, 2018 - 13:00 to 15:00
Do entrepreneurs differ from others with regard to their behavioral traits, and are self-employed workers stigmatized when they transition back to paid employment? This thesis explores these questions by resorting to three experiments. It first tests the hypothesis of whether entrepreneurs are more action-oriented than other occupational groups. The thesis then tests the hypothesis of whether entrepreneurs are more dishonest than others, including those who have the intention of becoming entrepreneurs. Finally, the thesis provides field experimental evidence on whether self-employed workers improve their job prospects when they go back to paid work compared to the alternative scenario where they would have stayed paid employees all along.
