Interface Between Entrepreneurship Practice and Curriculum
MetadataShow full item record
Although recent research questions the relevance and value of university entrepreneurship programmes to practice, the nature and effectiveness of these programmes has received little academic attention. Previous research overseas suggests these programmes have had varying levels of success in demonstrating how particular courses in tertiary-level instruction lead to future entrepreneurial success. However, no such studies have examined the overall global discipline of entrepreneurship with Critical Success Factors (CSFs) of practitioners and curriculum. This represents an important gap in the literature. This research examines university entrepreneurship courses through investigating links with identified CSFs of practicing entrepreneurs. Identified factors are specific to the entrepreneur, the organisation and the environment. Content analysis results revealed significant differences between CSFs used by practicing entrepreneurs and the nature/mix of university curriculum.
