About this book
The presence of enterprising activity, which now permeates universities globally, leaves a notable legacy and impact on both individuals and institutions. This book explores the universal and growing relationship between entrepreneurship and higher education.
Beginning with a general introduction to entrepreneurship education-related applications of pedagogy and educational philosophy, the book goes on to discuss institutional and stakeholder relevancy, followed by the cultural impact of entrepreneurship. In doing so, the book highlights the multifaceted nature of embedded entrepreneurship within institutions pedagogically, philosophically, socially, and structurally.
Acknowledging several perspectives of entrepreneurship, the author addresses the core questions for higher education, reflects on thematic case studies concerning enterprise and entrepreneurship within the sector, and presents a new model for university-based entrepreneurship across teaching, research, and business development activities.
