Does Entrepreneurship Education Matter? Business Students' Perspectives
Egerová, Dana; Eger, Ludvík; Micík, Michal
Tertiary Education and Management, v23 n4 p319-333 2017
The paper presents the findings of a mixed-methods study investigating the perceptions of business students in the Czech Republic towards entrepreneurship education, and examining the factors influencing their level of intention to be entrepreneurs. The results indicate that family background significantly influences the student's entrepreneurial intention, and that participation in entrepreneurship-oriented courses positively influences the student's level of self-efficacy. The study revealed further that business education had some effect on the student's ability to gain the necessary knowledge for entrepreneurship. Another key finding was that entrepreneurship education specifically for business students has to equip students with entrepreneurial skills, attributes and behaviours. The results also suggest that entrepreneurship education is a contextually determined concept which requires modification of content and methods to meet the specific needs of particular target groups. The study has important implications for higher education institutions in terms of designing and managing effective entrepreneurship education.
