Contemporary Issues in Entrepreneurship Research
Universities globally are under pressure from an expanding range of stakeholders to provide enterprise education and support to students. Enterprise education had become a research domain in itself and an increasingly important aspect of UK universities’ curricular. Within the UK, policymakers consider enterprise education, and the skills it develops, as increasing student’s employability skills, regardless of what their primary subject of study is, and thereby assisting them in gaining employment upon. Despite this growth, there is ongoing debate regarding the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education and there are calls for further evidence to validate its impact. This book meets that call in providing further evidence for best practice and successful deployment. Authors provide evidence to inform the entrepreneurial education discipline in terms of best practice, success stories and identify its future direction for key stakeholders. The book concludes with a summary from the authors which will analyse and contrast the emergent themes identified in each chapter.
Contributed by entrepreneurship, business, management, and economics researchers from Europe, Ghana, the US, and Brazil, the 14 chapters in this volume consider evidence for best practices in the construction and delivery of entrepreneurship education around the world, as well as success stories and the future direction of the field. They address its impact on student communities, with discussion of a learning-based approach, drivers of entrepreneurial intentions, determinants of entrepreneurial spirit, and the impact of UK entrepreneurship education on the entrepreneurial actions of Russian students; new pedagogical practices, including techniques that affect the way students think about entrepreneurship, creating meaningful entrepreneurial practice, the impact of an experiential visual-based learning pedagogy, entrepreneurial education for business executives, and constructivist teaching; and new interventions to engage with the entrepreneurship education agenda, such as summer academies, enterprise education in vocational education, a sandwich-year placement scheme, and an inclusive and accessible entrepreneurship education initiative.
