The Perceived Impacts of Entrepreneurial Education on Entrepreneurial ‎Intentions among Undergraduate Students in South-West, Nigeria‎
Oluwatoyin G., Bawalla, Luqman O. Muraina
Pages: 64-77


This study sought to examine the impacts of entrepreneurship education on entrepreneurial ‎intentions among undergraduates’ students in South-West, Nigeria. It made an in-road into the ‎phenomenon by examining the rationale inherent in imparting entrepreneurship into ‎undergraduate students which bordered on increasing socio-economic development and ‎transformation. This study was anchored on interpretative understanding of Rational Choice ‎Theory and its underpinnings centred on weighing the likely pros and the cons of any action ‎before one dabbles into it. The research design was cross-sectional and exploratory in its ‎approach. Mixed method of data collection was adopted and data were generated through 403 ‎copies of questionnaire and 12 IDIs’ across four universities in South West, Nigeria. The ‎findings revealed that the undergraduates who had acquired entrepreneurship knowledge and ‎skills were perceived to have higher entrepreneurship intentions than undergraduate students ‎that did not have knowledge of entrepreneurship. The study concluded that undergraduate ‎students’ in South-West had very good knowledge of entrepreneurship education which served ‎as a good propelling factor towards enterprise creation. However, the study recommended that ‎undergraduates should be taught on how to utilise IT in positively impacting on the ‎actualisation of their vision in becoming entrepreneurs, and that entrepreneurship educators ‎should be trained, re-trained, motivated and developed‎.
