Evaluating mentorship-based learning in entrepreneurship education
Entrepreneurship education impacts students’ entrepreneurial intentions. However, the role of teachers’ mentorship in influencing students’ entrepreneurial intentions has received little attention in the extant literature. This paper examines the impact of entrepreneurship education teachers’ mentorship pedagogy on students’ entrepreneurial intentions using structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis on data collected from 220 students studying entrepreneurship at six UK universities. The novel results presented here demonstrate the power of entrepreneurship education teachers’ mentorship to effect students’ attitudes, perceived behavioural control and, subsequently, their entrepreneurial intentions. The paper integrates mentorship with the theory of planned behaviour and contributes to the ongoing efforts to improve entrepreneurship education at universities.

Abstract

Entrepreneurship education impacts students’ entrepreneurial intentions. However, the role of teachers’ mentorship in influencing students’ entrepreneurial intentions has received little attention in the extant literature. This paper examines the impact of entrepreneurship education teachers’ mentorship pedagogy on students’ entrepreneurial intentions using structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis on data collected from 220 students studying entrepreneurship at six UK universities. The novel results presented here demonstrate the power of entrepreneurship education teachers’ mentorship to effect students’ attitudes, perceived behavioural control and, subsequently, their entrepreneurial intentions. The paper integrates mentorship with the theory of planned behaviour and contributes to the ongoing efforts to improve entrepreneurship education at universities.
