Description:

This book offers various examples for teaching and learning entrepreneurship in academia. Readers gain insight into the real work and experience of entrepreneurship educators from universities and business schools across Europe, especially from Northern Europe. The practice-oriented case studies also highlight the different, sometimes country-dependent contexts of teaching and the challenges for entrepreneurship education and promotion. Moreover, different solutions for the problems entrepreneurship educators face in providing effective learning environments are demonstrated. Thus, the case studies are also an inspiring text book and teaching material. Book jacket.
