The important debate on the growing graduate skills gaps, the value of universities to their business communities, and their role (or lack of ) in building entrepreneurial attributes among graduates is growing internationally.

Using case studies from universities across the globe, this edited book seeks to bring together leading authors with knowledge, and/or experience, of the challenges of embedding enterprise education in university and college programmes. The text identifies and presents the current debates around the future role of universities and colleges in providing ‘fit for workplace’ graduates, as well as offering insights into the challenges and practices involved in delivering innovative enterprise education. The approach collates examples of ‘best practices’ from global institutions enabling educators to develop ‘blueprints’ for implementing in their own institutions.

This innovative and comprehensive text is designed to be a ‘seminal resource’ for academic stakeholders on enterprise education collating diverse international contributions from enterprising universities and colleges. Drawing on both theory and best practice, it provides invaluable guidance to researchers, educators and practitioners considering embedding or expanding enterprising activities into their learning strategy.
