The State of Entrepreneurship Education at Tertiary Institutions in the Western Cape
Brijlal, Pradeep
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n2 p25-35 Feb 2008
This paper summarizes, analyses the offerings and gaps on entrepreneurship education at four tertiary institutions in the Western Cape. Most of the offerings were knowledge based. Some of the participants on the programmes were exposed to real businesses and hence had experiential learning. The individual as an entrepreneur seemed to be overlooked. As tertiary institutions' culture changes it will become more important to understand students' entrepreneurial needs in order that there is institutional "fit" between higher education offerings and the need for students. The various institutions should collaborate on a frequent basis to establish the needs and share resources. This can include services like consulting, mentoring, training and research by experts in the field and share their experiences with other lecturers and trainers. (Contains 1 table.)
