Abstract
This study examines employment trends (e.g., the number, level, and priority of entrepreneurship positions and candidates, etc.) for the field of entrepreneurship from 1989/90 to 2004. The results indicate that the market for entrepreneurship faculty is currently a seller’s market, with demand outpacing the supply of faculty. The results also indicate that the field of entrepreneurship is becoming more institutionalized. More resources are being committed to obtain senior faculty with a primary interest in entrepreneurship. Other findings and implications are discussed.
