Several studies (Athayde 2009a; Solomon, Dickson & Solomon 2008) suggest that entrepreneurship, or at least some aspects of entrepreneurship, can be taught successfully in general education. According to Solomon et al. (2008), there is a significant and positive relationship between education and entrepreneurial performance, whereas Peterman and Kennedy (2003) support the inclusion of exposure to entrepreneurship education as a variable in entrepreneurship intention models. While maintaining that it is easier to influence entrepreneurial orientation than start-up inclinations, Frank et al. (2005) concede that the education process as well as students’ immediate and general environment can be used to influence entrepreneurial orientation and the inclination to start a new business.
According to Beeka and Rimmington (2011), entrepreneurship is one of the career options students may consider shortly before or immediately after graduation. Sharma (2014) argue that youth entrepreneurship is a major pillar for stimulating regional growth and reduce unemployment. Herrington et al. (2009) states that due to failure of the formal and public sector to absorb the growing number of job seekers, increasing attention has focused on entrepreneurship and new firm creation and its potential for contributing to economic growth and job creation. Rao (2014) points out that many of the successful entrepreneurs started their businesses during their studies. Simultaneously, successful businesses are coming out of universities constantly.
