Abstract:

Entrepreneurship education could support the development of an entrepreneurial culture that can influence the cultural values and economic development. This research aims, firstly, to present some theoretical guidelines about entrepreneurship education. And secondly, to present an empirical study that assess the entrepreneurial perception of students included in a partnership programme between higher education and secondary schools. This analysis allows a set of findings, we highlight the positive impact of the programme analysed, as well as a strong sense of entrepreneurial skills by students and their increased awareness of the importance of entrepreneurship for their personal and professional life.
