Entreprenorial Activity Versus Entrepreneurship Education
AbstractEntrepreneurship is one of the fastest-growing discipline throughout the world. However, the importance of entrepreneurship in economic theory is not new and consistent interest in this topic can be traced back to almost a century ago. As with any young discipline, the role and content of entrepreneurship education remains controversial. It seems difficult to decide if entrepreneurship is rather “science” than “art”, or if can be divided between teachable and non-teachable elements, or if entrepreneurship courses should focus on the advancement of personal enterprising attributes or on the ability to start, develop and manage a firm. This paper questions the relevance and appropriateness of entrepreneurship education. The results show that there is still in important gap between the prescriptions of entrepreneurship courses and training programs, on the one hand, and the insights of entrepreneurship theory, on the other hand.
