2 © Copyright 2007 – Good and bad in entrepreneurship education

3 © Copyright 2007 – Good Entrepreneurship education is a global phenomenon and is continuing to grow –Growth in provision; activity; engagement –Growth in demand by students and the business community The universities and waking up from their beauty sleep Governments and European Commission are starting to speak the language We know that entrepreneurship education is the key driver for national and regional development, but did you know that only that less than 5% of young people in Europe have access to entrepreneurship education in school?

4 © Copyright 2007 – Bad Students believe that higher education will not contribute to achieving their aspirations - teaching does not reflect business Narrow use of pedagogies; lack of curriculum which include: –Theory and practice –Cross disciplinarily Lack of entrepreneurial experience from educators Focus on teaching/content rather than learning processes Too little government support!! Growth in demand from high tech, humanities and social science subject areas, but only few that can teach the subjects Entrepreneurship is often marginalized and fragile at universities –Individual universities have difficulties in carrying out the task alone
