Abstract

This paper discusses the current state of entrepreneurship education particularly at the level of higher education institutions. Based on the premise that the main goals of entrepreneurship education are a) increasing the level of entrepreneurial competence and b) raising a positive attitude towards entrepreneurial behavior, I take stock of methods and tools that can be utilized to achieve those goals. Furthermore, based on this analysis of the status quo two trends are identified and discussed that may shape the future of entrepreneurship education. These trends are a) the tendency to narrow the scope of entrepreneurship education and to deliver entrepreneurial knowledge to specialized audiences and b) the opposing tendency to widen the scope of traditional entrepreneurship education by introducing entrepreneurial concepts to audiences that could be considered unusual from a pure business perspective.

Keywords: entrepreneurship education, status quo, trends
