In Chapter 13 of 21 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, business school professor Ben Hallen answers "How Do You Approach the Learning Dichotomy When Considering Whether to Teach Entrepreneurs in a Classroom Environment Versus a Hands On Experiential Environment?" Hallen balances teaching using theoretical frameworks with putting skills to practice. Whether students are learning to be entrepreneurs or advancing existing skillsets, Hallen finds engaging outsiders - mentors, entrepreneurs, potential customers - an effective and complementary learning approach. Hallen is an Assistant Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School. Previously, he was Assistant Professor of Management and Organization at University of Maryland. Hallen earned his PhD from Stanford University and its Stanford Technology Venture Program (STVP). He has been a startup CTO and graduated from the University of Virginia with a BS in Electrical Engineering and a Masters in Computer Science.
