Abstract

While entrepreneurship education is widespread, the extent of the benefits that it provides is not yet fully understood. With a wealth of research available, the results have been mixed and in some cases conflicting. This paper employs a comparative approach in examining the effects of entrepreneurship education over time on two cohorts (undergraduates in a university entrepreneurship course, and students in a professional entrepreneurship program). Participants in the professional entrepreneurship education program were found to utilize a range of skills to a higher degree than undergraduates. The findings indicated that short term effects of entrepreneurship education programs persist into the future. Research also indicated a strong correlation between skill use and entrepreneurial self-efficacy which in turn increases entrepreneurial intent. Keywords: entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial learning, entrepreneurship research, entrepreneur
