Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship: What is it about? [pdf]

The origins of post-secondary entrepreneurship education can be traced back to Kobe University (1938) and Harvard Business School (1947). Ever since there is no common agreement how entrepreneurship should be taught and some scholars argue not just to teach students about entrepreneurship but to educate them for it.
