Entrepreneurship Education : A Meta Analysis of Impact Studies and Applied Methodologies

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Past impact studies have univocally reported a positive impact of entrepreneurship education. Only recently have some authors cast doubts about the research methods and generalizability of entrepreneurship education impact studies. This study contributes to the field by analyzing the underlying research methodologies of impact studies using a meta-analysis approach. Our results indicate significant methodological deficiencies and question the mostly universal assessment of entrepreneurship education as having a positive impact. Based on this evidence we propose a series of recommendations to improve the reliability and validity of future impact studies.
