Abstract: Jones, Maas and Pittaway have compiled a unique combination of studies that illustrates novel perspectives of entrepreneurship education practice. The book explores diverse aspects of entrepreneurship education practice including the impact and effectiveness of interventions to enhance competencies and practices. The chapters provide additional evidence of the experiences of entrepreneurship educators drawn from a wide range of countries including Brazil. Denmark, Finland, Ghana, Greece, Italy, Russia and the United Kingdom. It is clear that entrepreneurship education is a global phenomenon that is still evolving in terms of its pedagogy, scope and sophistication. Such studies are required to inform and guide best practice. This book includes consideration of e-learning programmes, evaluation of effective and innovative pedagogy, experiential learning, student attitudes, executive education, small business support and enterprise promotion, training provision and graduate start-up. The book is organised into three parts. The first section considers studies of the impact of entrepreneurship education upon student communities. This evidence is essential both to reflect and refine existing practice but also to recognise the impact of entrepreneurship education on its recipients. The second section involves studies on entrepreneurial education pedagogy and makes suggestions in terms of best practice. The final section, discussions entrepreneurship education interventions via projects to highlight effective and novel practice and external engagement. These studies will further inform the global literature base and provide fresh insights to inform both policy and practice. The text will be of interest to the entrepreneurship education academic community, enterprise support agencies and policy makers.
