Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The COVID-19 pandemic brought changes to entrepreneurship education. This new reality brings a big challenge for entrepreneurship professors. This study explores the use of resources by professors during the COVID-19 pandemic to determine changes, support, and success factors to teach entrepreneurship. Also, we explore the resources that professors perceived that they would need postpandemic. We performed 13 qualitative interviews with entrepreneurship professors in Mexico. We identified institutional and emotional support and a network of support as essential elements for professors. Flexibility is a recurrent theme. Results from this research may be helpful for those in charge of educational institutions who need to adapt workplace policies and make sure to fulfill the needs of professors in times of crisis.
