Current perceptions and practices in doctoral education in the field of entrepreneurship are explored. The paper developed from efforts of a Task Force formed by the Entrepreneurship Division of the Academy of Management in response to several important observations: growing demand for faculty in entrepreneurship, growing membership in the division, more participants in doctoral and junior faculty consortia, increasing attention to entrepreneurship education at all academic levels, and the implementation of more doctoral seminars and programs in the field. Using a process outlined in Summer et al. [J. Manage. 16 (1990) 361], the Task Force addressed the following questions: (1) What is the current state of doctoral education in entrepreneurship? (2) How should doctoral education in Entrepreneurship be designed? Recommendations are presented.
