Chapter Preview


The variety of entrepreneurship education programs has expanded in Europe, Asia, North America, Australia, and New Zealand (Gartner & Vesper, 1994). Even in the United States, where there is a well-established tradition of entrepreneurship education, there has been an enormous growth in the number of relevant courses offered during the 1990 to 2005 period (Solomon, 2007). The expansion of educational offerings has been fueled in part by dissatisfaction with the traditional Fortune 500 focus of business education voiced by students and accreditation bodies (Solomon & Fernald, 1991). Entrepreneurship education programs and courses provide the context and content to help students learn and apply the entrepreneurial skills and behaviors intended to create value in entrepreneurial firms (Gundry, Ofstein, & Kickul, 2014). The curricular design for entrepreneurship education programs has been studied as one of the main topics in the management literature (Urbano, Aponte, & Toledano, 2008).
