(2) Students are supposed to pick one of the topics and corresponding papers from the list below. Please email me your first and second preference until October 9th. No more than two students will be assigned to the same topic.
(3) Seminar papers must not exceed 20 pages (minimum 11 pica letter size; double-spaced typing; 3 cm margins all around; including all figures, tables, and references). They must use appropriate citation and reference rules and obey the general ethical principles of scientific work. Seminar papers are due on the last day of the final presentation on the 25th of January 2013. Every student must individually submit a seminar paper.
(4) Complete attendance of each session of the seminar, including the preparatory meeting, is obligatory. Absolutely no exceptions apply. Leaves will only be granted in cases of illnesses or if the person demanding a leave is required to participate in an official activity of the University, Faculty, or Institute. In the first case, the doctor’s medical certificate must be presented to the Chair immediately (i. e. latest by the first working day following the absence day). Failure to comply with this rule leads to a no-pass grade. Passing grades can generally not be earned by students who miss more than 10% of the total class-time.
(5) The provided study also serves as a starting point for the analyses. Students are expected to search for related articles, situate the research question in the wider context and provide additional individual analyses where deemed appropriate.
(6) The final grade will be calculated as the weighted average of the grades for the seminar paper (50 %), for the presentation (40%), and for classroom participation (10 %)
The Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics (PSED) research program is designed to enhance the scientific understanding of how people start businesses. The projects provide valid and reliable data on the process of business formation based on nationally-representative samples of nascent entrepreneurs, those active in business creation. PSED I began with screening in 1998-2000 to select a cohort of 830 with three follow-up interviews. A control group of those not involved in firm creation is available for comparisons. PSED II began with screening in 2005-2006, followed by six yearly interviews. The information obtained includes data on the nature of those active as nascent entrepreneurs, the activities undertaken during the start-up process, and the characteristics of start-up efforts that become new firms.
