Entrepreneurship Education - A Lifelong Learning Approach

This book explores how entrepreneurship education can be embedded throughout the learner’s lifetime. To date, entrepreneurship education has tended to begin on an ad hoc basis at the higher education level: some institutions offer it as an elective or compulsory course, while others offer it as a degree program. In most countries, entrepreneurship has not yet been widely adopted in the core curriculum, and formal entrepreneurship education is almost exclusively offered to young learners.
In addition to presenting critical views on who can benefit from entrepreneurship education, including children/schoolchildren, students in higher education and older people, the book proposes a model of holistic entrepreneurship education to promote a lifelong learning journey for educators and learners alike.
