Abstract

This study explores a multi-dimensional model for measuring the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education. The proposed model was validated through an empirical study involving 298 college students who have participated in entrepreneurship courses in China. The research results show that the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education can be observed through the improvement of participants' entrepreneurial competencies, the reduction of their entrepreneurial barriers and the change of their entrepreneurial intention. On this basis, this study draws on the approach of the Triangulation widely used in qualitative research and develops a 'Triangle Measurement Model for the Entrepreneurship Education Effectiveness'. The Model provides an effective tool for the development and upgrading of entrepreneurship education courses, as well as a standard framework for cross-cultural or cross-regional comparative studies of entrepreneurship education.
