About this event

Throughout the last few decades, entrepreneurship education has become increasingly popular. There is vigorous debate over the definition of this relatively young field and several scholars identify key gaps in research that offer potential to both define and understand the impact of entrepreneurship education. Entrepreneurship Programs have been categorized as being either “for,” “about,” or “through” and/or “in” entrepreneurship.

  • “For” entrepreneurship programs strive to prepare learners as entrepreneurs and businesspeople.
  • “About” programs help learners develop a general understanding of entrepreneurial practice.
  • “Through” or “in” programs provide an educational setting in which learners learn through entrepreneurial practice (Warhuus et al, 2018).

Join us as we welcome professional colleagues (scholars, practitioners and education entrepreneurs) who bring diverse experience and perspectives about entrepreneurship and innovation in the context of education. Together, we will explore, is there innovation in entrepreneurship education?
