Abstract

The guidance for entrepreneurship education has provided a framework for assessing and developing business and entrepreneurial attributes and skills which work hand in hand to contribute to the development of entrepreneurial behavior within individuals. Entrepreneurship education is an important tool for shaping the entrepreneurship behavior of graduates. With this in mind a large amount of universities have decided to establish entrepreneurship education programs in their curricular. This study is therefore focused on assessing the effect of entrepreneurship education outcomes on entrepreneurship behavior. Data were collected by using questionnaire, 302 postgraduate students and descriptive research design was used for the analysis of data. The results indicate the positive effect of entrepreneurship education outcome on entrepreneurial behavior T (R= .584, R square= .341, t= 10.233). Based on the findings, it is recommended that more universities should include entrepreneurship courses in their curricula and must ensure that all students regardless of their academic specialization study entrepreneurship. The learning environment should be conducive enough for learning so as to encourage students to pursue entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship education should have the practical aspect whereby students are asked to take up a business project. This therefore helps to build the entrepreneurship behavior of students in which student’s exhibit entrepreneurial traits such as risk taking, innovating new ideas having a clear vision for the business.
