Teaching Entrepreneurship: International Contexts and Progress

  • Robert James CrammondEmail author


In this chapter, Crammond underlines the importance of entrepreneurship education for educational institutions. The increasing need for students to be equipped with enterprising skills and develop creative mind-sets has justified the argument and need for purposive and relevant entrepreneurship education. This chapter discusses the progression of entrepreneurship education internationally, and its contextual development within universities today. The aspects of delivery and assessment methods, along with building valuable legacies, are also encountered as Crammond highlights the varied and vibrant environments apparent from the now many entrepreneurship courses and certificated programmes offered. The what?, how? and when? questions surrounding the teaching of entrepreneurship, as encountered in recent research, are also addressed. Practical worksheets are also referred to in assisting educators, student support workers, and students alike.
