Visiting Scholar Lunch & Lecture: "Creating Entrepreneurial Cultures: A View from Ukraine"


Location: Elizabeth E. Nanovic Seminar Room (1050)

In post-communist Ukraine today, the culture of economic growth is immensely important. Prof. Sophia Opatska, founding Dean of the Lviv Business School in western Ukraine, is cultivating precisely this kind of business culture. She was chosen in 2008 to be the founding dean of the Lviv Business School at Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU).  Fluent in Ukrainian, English, and Russian, Prof. Opatska joins the Nanovic Institute this fall semester in order to learn more about how to stimulate and nurture cultures of innovation and entrepreneurship through micro-lending, intellectual property law, and “so-called soft infrastructure: the attitudes of managers and organizations toward organizational learning, development, and prosperity.”

Complimentary lunches will be available while supplies last.  All are welcome.
