It is widely recognized that entrepreneurship is vital to regional economic development. And recent studies in entrepreneurial expertise have shown that effectuation is important to doing entrepreneurship well. Furthermore, since expertise involves teachable and learnable aspects of a knowledge domain, it is reasonable to assume that entrepreneurship education would have a significant role to play in regional economic development. In this paper, we empirically investigate the above argument in two stages: First, we explore the role of effectuation in designing a competitive graduate program for entrepreneurship in Croatia; then, we examine the role of entrepreneurship education in regional economic development.
