The Entrepreneurship Education in Business Schools: Best practices and recommendations project aims to address the gap between the growing number of entrepreneurship initiatives in Business Schools in Europe and the lack of guidance on how to support this type of education. In addition, it attempts to promote processes of creative research and innovation that must be the base of the future of business education. Among others, the main goal of this project is to provide guidelines for business schools on improving entrepreneurship education.
The first phase of the project, led by Chartered ABS and Asociación Española de Escuelas de Dirección de Empresa (AEEDE), covered literature review, the methodology of the research, and focused on Spain. The second phase is now presenting the research on French Business Schools, which was led by Chapitre des Écoles de Management of Cenferénce des Grandes Écoles (CGE). It looks into the practices and methods of the Entrepreneurship education in three business schools in France: South Champagne Business School (SCBS), EDC de Paris, and Toulouse Business School (TBS). The methodology is based on a qualitative approach, including secondary data collection and qualitative interviews with entrepreneurship managers from the Business Schools.
The findings of the research as well as recommendations for entrepreneurship education are noted in the recent project report.
To better understand the entrepreneurship education practices in Europe, currently, the third part of the project addressing Business Schools in Italy is ongoing under the lead of Associazione Italiana per la Formazione Manageriale (ASFOR).
