THE ROLE OF ENTREPRENEURIAL EDUCATION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to identify the connection between entrepreneurial education and the development of entrepreneurship and to reexamine the importance of education in an intention of starting a business venture. In the process of education skills, culture and attitudes on particular subjects are established. Entrepreneurial education especially enables the combination of experimental learning, skills development and, the most important thing, the change in the way of thinking of individuals. Researches have shown that entrepreneurship can be learned because education can help to achieve and increase the awareness and acceptance of entrepreneurship as a valuable career option. Entrepreneurial education is strategically directed towards establishing an entrepreneurial venture. Conducted meta-analysis shows that there is a positive link between entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial intentions which confirms the success of the current entrepreneurial education programmes and the importance of further enhancing and developing those programmes.
Keywords: entrepreneurial education, entrepreneurial intentions, entrepreneurship.
