Institutional Setting and Presentation of the Dataset
Overall, this book aims at discussing and determining the effects of entrepreneurship education on entrepreneurial attitudes and intentions, both from a theoretical, but also from an empirical perspective. Having laid out the theoretical foundations in the previous chapter, I now describe my research design and the generation of a dataset based upon which I can empirically measure the size and nature of the effects of entrepreneurship education in the following chapters. I argued that my theoretical framework has some advantages compared to those of previously conducted studies (see subsection 1.2.4). In this chapter I discuss the practical application of this framework. On the other hand, I discuss several caveats emanating from the data that have to be kept in mind when interpreting the findings of the following chapters. I also present the data collection processes in detail to prove the validity of my data and to make a reproduction of this design possible for a further validation of my findings.
