Academia facing small business reality: a study from the perspective of university trainees
Luleå University of Technology, Department of Business Administration, Technology and Social Sciences, Innovation and Design.
1999 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Promoting the development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by means of different programs for knowledge and technology transfer from universities is common in most countries. In this paper we, building on two decades of experience from a university trainee program for smaller firms, address two questions: (1) How do SME-Trainees taking part in a specific program in Sweden perceive the value of their trainee period, and (2) how do trainees, utilising a specific list of variables, characterise their host firms. In focus are differences relating to firm size. The results indicate that trainees in micro firms are more satisfied with their trainee period than trainees in larger SMEs, which - considering that the trainees characterised these micro firms as less developed - was somewhat surprising. Utilising former trainees as initiated respondents this paper also suggests that a cut-point represented by five employees in a significant way distinguish smaller and larger SMEs.
