Abstract

In this study, two groups of people, instructors who taught entrepreneurial focused classes (N = 46) and students enrolled in entrepreneurial classes (N = 138) were asked to define entrepreneurship. The responses were coded into general categories and the categories were compared across groups. Student responses were also analyzed based on several other demographic variables including gender, relationship to entrepreneurial parents, prior entrepreneurial experiences, and major. Results highlight some of the different perceptions and goals that students and faculty hold regarding entrepreneurship.
