    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Purpose - This paper is a critique of the “Enterprise in Education” initiative, which has been implemented, supported and developed at the University of Glamorgan. The purpose of the paper is to critique the initiative so that best practice in enterprise education can be identified and embedded in the future.

    Design/methodology/approach - The methodology for this paper was to review the related literature and use this to identify conceptual frameworks relating to entrepreneurial learning; distinguish between “for” and “about” entrepreneurship courses and better understand the informal learning experience. This was then followed by reflective critical analysis of the formal and informal learning activities at the university.

    Originality/value - This paper provides a case study of entrepreneurial learning in the university context and as such will be valuable to those developing courses in the field of entrepreneurship and those involved in developing university policy surrounding entrepreneurial learning.
