Classroom challenge

There is no shortage of entrepreneurship in entrepreneurship education. Twenty-one Australian universities offer entrepreneurship specialisations and more are introducing undergraduate degrees on the topic. Growth has been stunning for an academic discipline that barely existed 15 years ago.
Yet there is little evidence that entrepreneurship education works and even less debate on when, where or how it should be taught. There are also doubts as to whether universities can offer so many new programs, given Australia has relatively few academics with entrepreneurship research backgrounds, few active researchers in the field and a shallow pool of research on which to draw.
