Oluwatoyin G., Bawalla, Luqman O. Muraina
Pages: 28-41


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. The study was anchored on interpretative understanding of Rational Choice ‎Theory and its underpinnings centred on weighing the likely pros and the cons of an action ‎before one dabbles into it. The research design was cross-sectional and exploratory, and the ‎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 lacks ‎knowledge of entrepreneurship. The study concluded that undergraduate students’ in South-‎West had very good knowledge of entrepreneurship education which serves as a good ‎propelling factor towards enterprise creation. 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.
