Chapter 2: Toward rigour and relevance in entrepreneurship education research
Restricted access

Research studying the impact of entrepreneurship education and training (EET) has grown rapidly over the past two decades, but the literature has limitations in clarity and depth due to methodological weaknesses in study design and analysis, a lack of theoretical grounding, and use of inconsistent variables for tracking EET outcomes over time. We highlight the specific weaknesses of the literature, argue for the theory of planned behaviour as a grounding theory, outline a plan for improving future EET research, and provide an example study to demonstrate the usefulness of our proposed model. In so doing, we contribute to efforts that seek to provide more rigour and relevance in EET scholarship and practice.
