  • Daniel Forbes is an associate professor of strategic management and entrepreneurship at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. During his residency as a Batten Fellow, Forbes explored the common perception of entrepreneurship as an "ideal form of work" that "fulfills, or at least approximates, widely-held aspirations about what the best kind of work might be." His project aims to develop a theoretical model of how and why entrepreneurship is idealized as a basis for future theoretical and empirical research. Daniel Forbes' articles appear in the Journal of Business Venturing,¬†AOM Review, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, and other journals. He has been awarded several academic honors and earned a B.A. from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. in Management and Organizational Behavior from the Stern School of Business, New York University.
