Entrepreneurship Education for Students: How Should Universities Prepare for the Challenge of Teaching Entrepreneurship?
Schwartz, Dafna; Malach-Pines, Ayala
Industry and Higher Education, v23 n3 p221-231 Jun 2009
This paper focuses on factors that influence the appropriateness of entrepreneurship studies to the needs and expectations of management students in Israel, where entrepreneurs are considered cultural heroes. The results of the authors' research revealed great interest in entrepreneurship studies among most of the students surveyed. However, differences were found between those students who intended to start a business and those who did not--in their business-related background, entrepreneurial traits and their business needs and expectations from entrepreneurship studies. These results highlight the disparity between the supply and the expectations from entrepreneurship programmes in universities, and as such have important implications for entrepreneurship education. (Contains 6 tables.)
