'I believe this to be the first book in the world to attempt an in-depth exploration of both the philosophy and practice of entrepreneurship education. As such it embodies a number of unique (and entrepreneurial) characteristics. Its emphasis is not upon teaching but on processes of learning. It is written by an entrepreneur who has experience of failure and builds upon a personal learning journey from entrepreneur to teacher and therefore has many thought-provoking insights. the main focus is upon the needs of student learners in higher education and the importance of their taking ownership of learning. the text seeks to demonstrate what this means in practice, how to build upon what learners already know and what they can bring to the party from very diverse perspectives. Unlike many other books in this field it is not prescriptive. It presents a debate and is designed to encourage the reader to think, reflect and indeed argue.' - from the foreword by Allan Gibb, University of Durham, UK

Business is the largest undergraduate major in the United States and still growing. This reality, along with the immense power of the business sector and its significance for national and global well-being, makes quality education critical not only for the students themselves but also for the public good. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's national study of undergraduate business education found that most undergraduate programs are too narrow, failing to challenge students to question assumptions, think creatively, or understand the place of business in larger institutional contexts. Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education examines these limitations and describes the efforts of a diverse set of institutions to address them by integrating the best elements of liberal arts learning with business curriculum to help students develop wise, ethically grounded professional judgment.

The key to teaching business ethics successfully, says Sims, is to start with clear goals and a sensible expectation of outcomes, and with a true knowledge and appreciation of how people actually learn. Proceeding with the conviction that open communications between teacher and student before, during, and after the teaching experience is vital, Sims identifies key teaching processes, gives practical advice on designing and planning the curriculum, and offers guidance on how to develop a climate conducive to effective learning. He also emphasizes learning styles and experiential learning theory as cornerstones of teaching business ethics, an approach unlike any in the literature. An important guide for those who are new to teaching this essential subject, Sims' book will also help more experienced teachers who wonder why their own methods do not always work, or do not work as well as they think they should.

The primary purpose of this book is to stimulate dialogue and discussion about the most effective ways of teaching ethics. Contributors to the book focus on approaches and methodologies and lessons learned that are having an impact in leading students to confront with accountability and understanding the bases of their ethical thinking, the responsibilities they have to an enlarged base of stakeholders (whose needs and interests often are conflicting), and their stewardship to use their talents responsibility not only in fulfilling an enterprise's economic goals but also to recognize the impact of their actions on both individuals and larger society. The primary audiences for the book are those individuals responsible for teaching management, especially those with responsibilities for teaching business ethics. But the book is also designed for practicing managers, for these managers have among their most important responsibilities the development of people in their organizations who have the integrity, values, and competences to be effective managers of economic resources while at the same time to recognize the roles of their enterprise in shaping society.

. . . this Handbook is inspiring. It is designed to assist educators in developing new programmes and pedagogical approaches based upon the previous experiences of others who have forged this exciting new path. I recommend it highly for the inspired as well as for the disillusioned entrepreneurship educator. Howard H. Frederick, Journal of Educational Administration and History This Handbook explores the current state of university-wide entrepreneurship education programs and provides a comprehensive reference guide for the planning and implementation of an entrepreneurship curriculum beyond the business school environment. A variety of authors spanning five countries and multiple disciplines discuss the opportunities and universal challenges in extending entrepreneurship education to the sciences, performing arts, social sciences, humanities, and liberal arts environments. The Handbook is designed to assist educators in developing new programs and pedagogical approaches based upon the previous experiences of others who have forged this exciting new path. Sections of the Handbook are devoted to philosophies and theory that provide a legitimate intellectual foundation for the fusion of entrepreneurship education with other traditional disciplines of the university, the politics and process of implementing entrepreneurship initiatives outside business schools, and examples of approaches to implementing entrepreneurship education outside business schools. The book identifies expected problems and solutions for new entrepreneurship curriculum development. It offers theory on education pedagogy that is critical to addressing concerns of non-business educators, and provides examples of successful efforts in a variety of non-business departments. Entrepreneurship faculty across disciplines and graduate students seeking ways to broaden involvement in entrepreneurship curriculum will find this volume invaluable, as will school administrators both in business and in the arts and sciences.

Research paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, , course: Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, language: English, abstract: This study examined whether entrepreneurship education offered in higher learning institutions in Tanzania trigger the adoption of an entrepreneurial behaviour. The aim of the study is to provide the understanding on why there is low participation of female with undergraduate degree in entrepreneurial activities. Building on the Theory of Planned Behaviour, various factors influencing entrepreneurial intention were tested. Specifically, the factors which influence entrepreneurial intention include: curricula, teaching methods, family back ground and institutional environment. Longitudinal research design was used and data was collected from 188 female students from the Institute of Accountancy Arusha and Kampala International University, Dar es Salaam College. Various techniques such as descriptive statistics, T-Test, Chi-Square were used to analyse the data. Basing on responses, the research revealed that entrepreneurship education has a positive effect on students’ personal attitude and perceived behavioral control of students on the intention to become an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship curricula, teaching methods and environmental conditions of the institutions do influence the entrepreneurial intentions of students to become entrepreneurs in the future. Specifically, Kampala International University students were more inspired (100%) to be entrepreneurs in the future by entrepreneurship course contents and entrepreneurship teaching methods than the Institute of Accountancy Arusha (77%). It is recommended that educators continuously improve their teaching methods and teaching styles, in order to accomplish this, they must assess the effectiveness of the teaching approaches; And if they wants to encourage students to be entrepreneurs, then they have to adopt experiential approaches rather than stick to traditional lecturing.

The Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education is well worth reading and both editions are excellent volumes for all of us involved and interested in the debate on how to bring entrepreneurship education forward and whether to create a distinctive domain of entrepreneurship studies. Domingo Ribeiro Soriano, Academy of Management Learning & Education . . . a commendable source of reference for entrepreneurship education researchers and practitioners alike, and would make a worthy addition to a library s collection. David Douglas, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research In this, the second volume of the Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education, leading international scholars highlight the unique characteristics and rich variety of research in entrepreneurship education. They adopt several different perspectives, focusing on key issues and significant developments in the field, and highlighting emergent new insights. The 35 contributors span 11 countries and three continents, demonstrating not only the richness but also the complexity of the field in terms of culture, geography and institutional, ethical and political systems. The Handbook is intended to collectively assist entrepreneurship educators in developing new programmes and pedagogical approaches that take into account the richness and diversity of these multiple perspectives. Highlighting the unique characteristics of research in entrepreneurship education, this Handbook will be of great interest to entrepreneurship researchers, academics and students wishing to understand the unique notions of entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial learning, which are often quite distinct from current practical views. The companion volume, Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education, Volume 1: A General Perspective, showcases the nature and benefits of the new wave in entrepreneurship education emerging as a result of revised academic programmes developed to reflect new forms of entrepreneurship.

The essential problem in entrepreneurship is improving the performance of entrepreneurs. The most important theories will be the ones that most enable us to predict and then ultimately influence entrepreneurial performance. This book develops a new and more accurate theory of entrepreneurial performance based in entrepreneurial creativity. The field of entrepreneurship has a long tradition of expecting entrepreneurial performance to be influenced by creativity, tracing back even before the pioneering work of Joseph Schumpeter (1883 to 1950), who defined entrepreneurship as creative-destruction—creating the new by supplanting or destroying the old. Subsequently, psychologist Robert Sternberg defined creativity as broadly encompassing creative aspects of personality, motivation, intellect, thinking style and relevant knowledge. Using Sternberg’s definition of creativity, the authors reviewed the evidence directly linking entrepreneurial creativity and entrepreneurial performance, concluding that the linkage is both statistically and practically significant. In order to scientifically tie entrepreneurship to creativity the book pursues a number of major objectives: In parts one and two, the authors remind us of our scientific challenge in the light of the depressing levels of performance typically to be found in the real world of entrepreneurship and explores the limitations of the dominant paradigms driving research in the field of entrepreneurship today. In part three, they bring together existing evidence to demonstrate the predictive and explanatory powers of creativity in relation to entrepreneurship. In part four, they further explore correlations between creativity and entrepreneurial performance at the individual and macro or society, levels. In summary, the book offers a bold predictive theory linking entrepreneurial creativity to entrepreneurial performance, however neither as boldly as a definitional linkage nor as timidly as one in a hundred or so factors potentially explaining entrepreneurial performance. This result is a general scientific theory that offers a serious challenge to entrepreneurial scholars who are pursuing other means for understanding the causality of entrepreneurial performance.
