The McKenna Center manages an active agenda of research projects that help us better understand

  • the potential of entrepreneurship and business as vehicles for solving social problems,
  • how and why human work and the workplace will change in the coming decades, and
  • ways in which global supply chains contribute to social inequities and how they can be modified in ways that enhance social and economic well-being.

Our research portfolio includes a wide range of scholarly and applied projects conducted by faculty members and students. In addition to being the editorial home of the Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, we advance our knowledge and understanding of entrepreneurship through the Global Partnership for Poverty and Entrepreneurship.
