“Finnish educators and researchers are part of a group of leading scholars from around the globe that are examining the important questions of entrepreneurship education,” said Corbett, the faculty director of Babson’s Butler Institute for Free Enterprise Through Entrepreneurship.

Corbett added, “It was great to share ideas with them and bring them some of my latest work on what comprises an entrepreneurial mindset, how the entrepreneurial mindset develops, and how we can teach it effectively.”

Sanna Ilonen, conference organizer and a professor of entrepreneurship at the University of Turku, said Corbett’s address inspired discussion throughout the conference. “The speech was fascinating and thought-provoking,” Ilonen said. “It was one of the clear highlights of the conference.”
