It will also examine how the local context is reflected in public training programmes and the tools that have been used to equip entrepreneurs. Jordan is a developing country and has a young population, situated in the midst of a turbulent region. The research will explore Jordanian entrepreneurs’ understanding of their local context and draw out implications for entrepreneurship research and education in general. Rana’s research is supervised by Dr Craig Duckworth.

She also has extensive working experience with USAID/Jordan.
