Whitman’s Amezcua selected for international entrepreneurship doctoral dissertation award
Alejandro Amezcua, a post-doctoral scholar in the Whitman School of Management, has been chosen as this year’s National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Dissertation Award winner. Titled “Boon Or Boondoggle? Business Incubation as Entrepreneurship Policy,” Amezcua’s dissertation investigates whether incubated new ventures outperform those that are not incubated.
Amezcua holds a Ph.D. and a M.P.A. from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. He is SU’s first Ph.D. graduate to receive the NFIB award.
Presented by the Academy of Management Entrepreneurship Division, the NFIB Dissertation Award is one of the entrepreneurship division’s two doctoral dissertation awards. The purpose is to recognize and honor outstanding doctoral research in the areas of entrepreneurship and independent business.
Amezcua will receive his check and plaque at the annual meeting in San Antonio in early August.
