Entrepreneurship, as a general concept, has a history since time immemorial. However, theoretically this concept has recently been explored as an academic disipline whereby various research programs have been conducted on the positioning of entrepreneurship education and effectiveness of the study materials. So far some models have been presented by researchers, but far from reaching a global consensus in this field. Still, challenging investigations are moving in a direction to reach adaptability.
This paper first starts with the historical background of entrepreneurship and then introduces some guidelines for promotion and extension of entrepreneurial knowledge and skills. Additionally the objectives of entrepreneurship education are discussed along with a model which is employed to assess the effectiveness of entrepreneurial instruction. Lastly, a case study is introduced on the back of the training programs of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs to survey their impact on the entrepreneurial behavior.
