Carl Schramm, an internationally known expert on entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth, is coming to teach at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management.
Schramm, called the "evangelist of entrepreneurship" by The Economist magazine, will teach in the spring quarter, beginning March 28.
His stint was made possible by a recent gift from the Arthur & Carlyse Ciocca Charitable Foundation.
Schramm is the former president and CEO of the Kansas City-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which works to advance entrepreneurship and education.
He also co-authored, with Robert Litan, the recently published book, "Better Capitalism: Renewing the Entrepreneurial Strength of the American Economy."
