That's the premise behind the school's recent creation of The Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence. And within that institute is a new center for the top management of midmarket, high-growth companies-the Entrepreneurial Fellows Center.
The center is recruiting its first class of "Fellows" for a program beginning in January 1999. The center will teach business management and also match attendees with successful local entrepreneurs who will serve as mentors. It's being led by Ann Dugan, who also is the head of the school's Small Business Development Center, a federal- and state-funded program for start-up and emerging businesses, and The Family Enterprise Center.
Frederick Winter, dean of the Katz School, says the new center reflects his vision to reach a business sector, which he says has been underserved by existing economic development services. It also rounds out the school's programs for all entrepreneurial stages.
