Further information

This authoritative and comprehensive Handbook 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.

Entrepreneurship as a domain of education and teaching is growing rapidly worldwide. The most efficient pedagogical, methodological and theoretical approaches to teaching and learning entrepreneurship in different settings are now highly sought after by researchers, advanced students and practitioners. This Handbook provides a one-stop source of state-of-the-art data, illustrating current conceptions of entrepreneurship education and identifying and answering critical methodological and theoretical questions. The Handbook is organized around three trends in entrepreneurship education: pedagogies, content and changes and innovation occurring within specific paradigms. It also provides several different perspectives on key issues and significant developments in the field.

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 2: Contextual Perspectives, focuses on key issues and significant developments in the field, highlighting emergent and developing approaches.
