Evaluating the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education on students’ entrepreneurial intention: case study from Malaysia
Entrepreneurship education (EE) has been identified as a strategic priority of the US and countries globally. Universities have developed EE to facilitate entrepreneurship. This is occurring without a corresponding increase in students engaging in entrepreneurship. There is an emerging body of research identifying problems residing in teaching methodologies relying on ‘best practices’ such as business plans, models, and canvases. Using the Theory of Planned Behavior, we evaluated changes in students’ intentions to become an entrepreneur after taking such a course. This research found no statistical change, no impact on student attitude, PBC, subjective norms, and intention to become an entrepreneur. Future research is required to determine what types of EE courses could have a positive impact on student intention to become entrepreneurs.
