This study aimed to develop a complete practical comprehensive module to improve students’ entrepreneurial skills, particularly to their managerial aspects. Research and development approach with design based research (Elly and Levy, 2010) was employed as the technique of this present study. For data collection and analysis throughdesign-based approach, several procedures were conducted, which involved problem identification, objectives framing, product design and development, product examination and test, result evaluation, and result communicating. The result of this research showed that the integrated entrepreneurship module was ultimately able to improve the students’ capability (80%) in both explaining and applying the concept of managerial aspects and entrepreneurial skills. As the result, this research finally produced an integrated module containing 3 chapters and 12 topics. Chapter 1 described on how to initiate entrepreneurial passion and consisted of 5 complete topics. Chapter 2 described on how to manage and run a business and it contained 6 topics. Chapter 3 described on how to implement a business plan and it consisted of 1 topic only. With this module, 80 % students were found successful understanding the given materials and implementing the management aspects in their entrepreneurial practice. Thus, the null hypothesis proposing that students’ entrepreneurial skills would be significantly improved was considered supported.
