Welcome to Entrepreneurial Education

Introduction and research
The strong emphasis on economic success and job creation during the recession has propelled entrepreneurial education to a prominent position in higher education level, but not as an integrated pedagogical approach for all students on all levels. In secondary education, the primary focus has been on elective courses and programs for a few secondary education students already possessing some degree of entrepreneurial passion and thus self-selecting into entrepreneurial education.

Very interesting video about Entrepreneurial mindset
