PERCEIVED EFFECTIVENESS OF SOUTH-SOUTH NIGERIAN PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES IN MANAGING ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION FOR EMPLOYMENT CREATION

University of Calabar (NIGERIA)
Entrepreneurship education has become imperative in the face of serious unemployment situation which is contributing to security challenges in Nigeria today. This is because it has the capacity to equip students with veritable skills that enable them to be job creators instead of job seekers and so discourage idleness among them. With the entrepreneurial skills, students will be in a better pedestal to fend for themselves upon graduation and thus become self reliant. This survey-designed study intends to find out the perceived effectiveness of South-South Nigerian public universities in managing entrepreneurship education for creation of employment among graduating students. One research question and two hypotheses will be isolated to direct this investigation. Graduating students in the public universities in South-South Nigeria will constitute the population. With stratified random sampling technique, 400 of them will be selected to form the sample size. A researcher-constructed instrument called “Perceived Effectiveness in Managing Entrepreneurship Education for Employment Creation Questionnaire (PEMEEECQ)” will be used for data collection. Descriptive statistics (Mean and Standard Deviation), Population t-test of single mean and Independent t-test statistical techniques will be used to analyse data generated. Results arising from the analysis of data will form the basis for discussion, conclusion and recommendations
