The principal goal of enterprise and entrepreneurship education is that graduates of HEIs major education and training programmes (e.g. bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programmes) acquire the knowledge, skills and competencies (learning outcomes)required to support their entrepreneurial activity in employment including self-employment.
Current thinking views entrepreneurship education as having three roles:
1. To learn to understand entrepreneurship – knowledge about entrepreneurship as a concept
2. To learn to become entrepreneurial – entrepreneurial skills and competencies development
3. To learn to become an entrepreneur – knowledge and entrepreneurial skills pertaining to business start-up and new venture creation
