Entrepreneurship Curriculum In Romanian Universities


  • Claudia Cordea

    () (West University of Timisoara, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration)


The central focus of universities should be the improving the quality and quantity of entrepreneurs or students with an entrepreneurial attitude. We argue that the academic field of entrepreneurship is at a very low level in Romania on several axes and the University must determine the best fit for them given their students, their alumni, their stakeholders, the region and its economic base and the aspiration of institutions. Entrepreneurship should it be something that will have high and positive impact for students not just another course in the curriculum. Entrepreneurship is concerned with establishing new activities and about being able to perceive new opportunities. Entrepreneurship competence is relevant for all areas of working and business life, in both new and established activities and enterprises. The aim of this paper is to provide an analysis of the present situation and recent evolution of entrepreneurship education in Romanian universities and to discuss these courses and curricula match the demand for entrepreneurial competences. This paper presents a short summary of the status of entrepreneurship curriculum and different challenges. The information collected through the Internet refers to the academic year 2012-2013. The range of theoretical choices, objectives, publics, pedagogical methods and institutional context should be structured around a general framework.
