Entrepreneurship education (EEd) at bachelor level in developing countries

Sule Selcuk, Ali Gursel


Entrepreneurship has been drawing attention of academia, business circles, policy makers and general public at an increasing rate as it is valued as an engine of economic developments. Although some argue that it can be learnt just by doing it, many types of EEd programs are being offered to high school students, university/college students and adults with various backgrounds and future plans. For efficient and effective EEd applications, various factors, such as local socio-economic conditions and degree of technological development in the country, need to be taken into consideration in tailoring EEd curricula and how to implement them. For example, EEd programs designed for developed countries need to be different from those for developing countries. This article focuses on EEd programs at higher education institutions in developing countries, for which entrepreneurship is a vital issue as it is one of the most effective tools for such countries to catch up with developed countries.
