Entrepreneurship Education: A need in South African Universities
The promotion of entrepreneurship in higher education has been recognised as an appropriate response to declining graduate employment in turbulent and unpredictable economic environments. In South Africa, higher education is expected to provide the labour market with high-level competencies and expertise necessary for the growth and prosperity of a modern economy, including entrepreneurs. This places significant pressure on higher education to produce graduates who have the necessary attributes for creating their own economic opportunities. One of the ways that South African Universities could respond to these challenges is by placing emphasis on entrepreneurship education as part of all universities programs. Do you think students enrolled in at university programs could have an interest in an entrepreneurship course, and would they be motivated for such courses?
