Entrepreneurship education is expanding rapidly around the world with growth evident in terms of the number of courses, endowed chairs, and programs. Business schools have approached their participation in entrepreneurship education with a variety of pace, practice and policy.

This authoritative collection is targeted towards business educators, educators interested in entrepreneurial approaches, and educational administrators. The volume’s main aims are to provide the groundwork for any organized discussion of entrepreneurship education; and to take stock of where we are in the educational field as a means of identifying the big questions, issues, and trends that will direct the future of the discipline.

The book is organized around content and pedagogy and includes chapters from leading experts. Emerging themes include the underlying assumptions built into the field, the importance of the interdisciplinary approach, concern with who is teaching entrepreneurship, and a call to make the approach more global.
