Abstract

Demand for graduates with entrepreneurial skills and attributes is rising yet there is little agreement on the most effective means of students learning these. This paper reviews the role of practice-based activities in entrepreneurial education and argues that the practice of enterprise creation offers an effective learning experience likely to help students to become ‘entrepreneurs-in-the-making’ rather than just graduates with a theoretical knowledge of entrepreneurship but little or no ability to operate effectively as an entrepreneur. Data was collected from students, academic staff, entrepreneurs and business communities participating in the delivery of modules on entrepreneurship. The findings demonstrate that ‘real-world’ learning activity, such as the creation of enterprise activities by students in conjunction with entrepreneurs, affords rich opportunities for students to acquire key entrepreneurial knowledge and experience through ‘real-life’ practice and their reflection on that practice. To support this, a new ‘practice-based’ curriculum is needed.
