One of the most tools used by economic communities and governmental systems to develop new business formation is entrepreneurship training. We try through this paper to assess efforts conducted in a medeteranien country (Tunisia) in the field of entrepreneurship education and training. Our methodology was to analyze different programs and curricula conducted in Tunisian higher education institutions, a multilevel survey also was used through different graduate levels to discuss student behaviors and representations. Results showed that generally we ignore specialty specificities which affected efficiency of different educational mechanisms to enhance entrepreneurial culture and the development of human capital. In the other side, and conscientious of the internationalization of new business creation, international entrepreneurship is in the most cases ignored in educational systems. Efforts are yet focused in personal characteristics of the successful entrepreneur and the economic nature of firms without serious and automatic seeks to specify new trends of business creation and specially participate to ensure openness to the international context in the field of entrepreneurship.
More attention shall be made to restructure entrepreneurship training programs and curricula and a specific focus must be in favor of international entrepreneurship. This educational orientation can afford more chances to potential entrepreneurs and more issues to economic policies especially toward unemployment.
