Cambridge Judge PhD alumnus wins Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Indigenous Entrepreneurship at the University of Arizona.
Dr Rick Colbourne, an alumnus of Cambridge Judge Business School’s PhD programme, has been awarded the Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Indigenous Entrepreneurship at the University of Arizona. Dr Colbourne, who has been a professor at the University of Northern British Colombia the past three years, will take on the role for a year.
Dr Colbourne has been working with Indigenous communities in Canada for several years. He now wants to focus on research that can build on the insight he has gained from designing and delivering programs for Indigenous business students and senior leaders in Canada and previously in New Zealand.
Dr Colbourne will design and deliver the University of Arizona’s first Indigenous Entrepreneurship programme, and anticipates it will be offered to Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in the spring of 2017. He will be facilitating sessions in Indigenous communities in the United States and Canada as part of his research activities.
Dr Colbourne said:
I am looking forward to meeting and developing collaborative relationships with other Indigenous scholars that will contribute to improving the well-being of Indigenous peoples (on their own terms) both in Canada and globally.
