Abstract

Entrepreneurship education is a growing field of studies internationally, as a range of curricular and co-curricular programs have emerged in higher education institutions. Considering the multiple goals and motivations of both those supporting and running entrepreneurship programs, how do entrepreneurship educators define “success”? This study explores this question focusing on the Canadian province of Ontario. Ontario is a critical case for investigating entrepreneurship education as programs in the field have proliferated over the past decade. Findings show multiple co-existing views on student success that are far from being reconciled, and speak to broader debates over the goals of entrepreneurship education in the university.
