Field Family Chair in Entrepreneurship and Professor of Management
Now in his fifth year as the Field Family Professor in Entrepreneurship at Baruch College, Thomas Lyons is continuing to bring the lessons he's learned from the entrepreneurial world to Baruch undergrad and grad students. His particular interest is in social entrepreneurship. This relatively new field seeks to address social and environmental problems that neither the government nor private sector has managed to tackle. For Lyons, it has spurred the development of courses on the theory and practice of social entrepreneurship at Baruch College; the authorship of several books, including a soon-to-be-released master's-level text on social entrepreneurship; and even an official entrepreneur coaching system currently running in several mid-west and southern states.
