January 27, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Zoltan J. Acs, a professor at the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business, shares this year's International Award for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Research for his work on the role of small businesses in the economy.

Acs, an entrepreneurship professor, recently received the award along with David B. Audretsch, chair of economic development at Indiana University, Bloomington.

It is the sixth year that the Swedish Foundation for Small Business Research has presented the award, which includes a statuette named "The Hand of God," created by Carl Milles, and a $50,000 prize.

The Swedish Foundation for Small Business Research praised the men for their contributions individually and their work as a research team. It noted their work as co-editors of Small Business Economics Journal, published by the University of Baltimore, for "advancing small business economic research."
