Abstract:In this paper firstly we discuss about existing regulations in entrepreneurship at university. In particular, we review existing normatives at School of Business Administration and Management at Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV). In this point, some experiences and activities to promote entrepreneurship in classrooms from other universities are detailed. We analize if these activities are useful for use in the UPV, only if this are not previously implanted. Also we propose other activities to apply in some of the subjects in the Business Administration and Management degree using, for example, role play technique.
The main conclusion is the currently implication of Universities in the entrepreneurship. They are establishing guides about general objectives that can be developed. But this guides should be flexible for teachers could adapt to its courses. They will propose activities based in entrepreneurship techniques motivation.
Another important aspect is the need to have more direct contact between the university and the business and economic world. In this way, teachers have a clear point of view of the current skills in demand by the society and how to motivate students in that direction. So It´s necessary a coordination and collaboration between different institutions inside and outside the university in order to formalize joint actions.
Keywords: Entrepreneurship, business administration, role play.
