Chapter 14: Approaches to entrepreneurship education: a qualitative review and comparison of the US and Canada

Ravi S. Ramani, George T. Solomon and Nawaf Alabduljader


We present a qualitative review of the state of the field of entrepreneurship education in North America, in which we examine topics such as the growth of the field, its attempts to differentiate itself from traditional business education, and current learning approaches and methodologies used in the classroom. We supplement this review with an analytical examination in which we present the results of a cross-country survey of over 200 entrepreneurship education programs in the United States (US) and Canada. Our results reveal important similarities and differences regarding entrepreneurship education between the US and Canada in terms of course content, pedagogical approaches and learning materials used, sources of funding, and measures of the impact of entrepreneurship education. We discuss the implications of these results and outline future directions for the field of entrepreneurship education.
