Institutional Setting and Presentation of the Dataset

  • Richard Weber
Part of the Innovation und Entrepreneurship book series (INNOV)


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.
