In this, the second volume of the Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education, leading international scholars highlight the unique characteristics and rich variety of research in entrepreneurship education. They adopt several different perspectives, focusing on key issues and significant developments in the field, and highlighting emergent new insights.

The 35 contributors span 11 countries and three continents, demonstrating not only the richness but also the complexity of the field in terms of culture, geography and institutional, ethical and political systems. The Handbook is intended to collectively assist entrepreneurship educators in developing new programmes and pedagogical approaches that take into account the richness and diversity of these multiple perspectives.

Highlighting the unique characteristics of research in entrepreneurship education, this Handbook will be of great interest to entrepreneurship researchers, academics and students wishing to understand the unique notions of entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial learning, which are often quite distinct from current practical views.

The companion volume, Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education, Volume 1: A General Perspective, showcases the nature and benefits of the new wave in entrepreneurship education emerging as a result of revised academic programmes developed to reflect new forms of entrepreneurship.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education is well worth reading and both editions are excellent volumes for all of us involved and interested in the debate on how to bring entrepreneurship education forward and whether to create a distinctive domain of entrepreneurship studies.’
– Domingo Ribeiro Soriano, Academy of Management Learning & Education

‘. . . a commendable source of reference for “entrepreneurship education” researchers and practitioners alike, and would make a worthy addition to a library’s collection.’
– David Douglas, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research
