WHAT IS THE CREATIVE INFLUENCE OF TEACHERS? EVIDENCE FROM MUSIC COMPOSITION SINCE 1450

By Karol Jan Borowiecki

Ideas are fundamental for the production of any creative output, whether in the arts, science or business. However, because ideas are so elusive, little is known on how they are transmitted across people. In this article I develop a novel approach to provide unique insights on how teachers influence the creative work of their students, how long this influence lasts, and what are the consequences for the students’ inventive output.

By Amy Whitaker and Amber He

Arts organizations can access economies of scope, overcoming some of the key challenges in managing costs, sharing risk, and accessing capital.

By Miguel Neiva and Ellen Loots

The ‘ecosystem’ notion is finding its way in the economic, management and policy literatures. In fact, in entrepreneurship, the entrepreneurial ecosystem is a well elaborated concept.

BRACE YOURSELVES, PIRATES ARE COMING! THE EFFECTS OF GAME OF THRONES LEAK ON TV VIEWERSHIP

By Wojciech Hardy

On 11 April 2015, episodes of the hit show Game of Thrones were leaked to the web.
