Abstract

The importance of entrepreneurship in the areas of poverty alleviation, wealth creation, job creation and economic vitality has resulted in the introduction of entrepreneurship as a compulsory course in Nigerian universities. The purpose is to transfer entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to youths for self reliance and job creation among others. In this paper, a study of the effect of Entrepreneurship education on students’ entrepreneurial actions was carried out using students from Covenant University and Babcock University, both in Ogun State of Nigeria. Primary and secondary sources were used in collecting the data required. It was discovered that positive relationship exists between entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial action. We therefore recommend that it is not enough to teach entrepreneurship as a course to students, they should be given the opportunity to practice what they are being taught while they are still in school. Key Words: Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Education and Entrepreneurial Actions.
