Entrepreneurship education helps develop entrepreneurial behavior by stimulating students’entrepreneurial skills. Indeed, students can acquire and implement specific methodologies to create, develop and support new activities. Our study will aim to describe and explain the entrepreneurship education in the Tunisian university. This learning is organized around five key areas: the methodology of entrepreneurship; training seminars; socio-economic development; support entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial values.
By following a hypothetical-deductive and descriptive method, we try to know the influence of exogenous variables that will foster entrepreneurship learning and improve the intent and the entrepreneurial skills of students. In this study, we focus on student populations of 3 years at the university (called LMD in Tunisia) after the program; namely, entrepreneurship awareness and developing a business plan. The choice of this frame is explained by the fact that these students are just a few months away from integrating into the world of work and express a variety of professional career intentions. Our research provides theoretical and practical contributions. In fact, it offers tools to advance the practice of entrepreneurship education at the University of Tunisia, with the aim of promoting the emergence of the entrepreneurial initiatives of students and graduates of the University.
