Collins, Lorna; Hannon, Paul D.; Smith, Alison
Education + Training, v46 n8-9 p454-463 2004
Provides a review of the gap between students entrepreneurial needs and aspirations and the entrepreneurship education offerings within higher education institutions HEIs in Leicestershire, UK. Utilises data from three surveys of university fresher students, held in 2001. Uses the findings as the basis to assess the gap between fresher students entrepreneurial needs and aspirations and the capability of HEIs to meet them. Draws on multiple surveys from universities in Leicestershire and so will be of relevance to other HEIs with similar student demographics. Fulfils a need to take a strategic review of how HEIs can develop the capability to meet the entrepreneurial needs of new students in supporting their future aspirations.
