INFLUENCE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION ON THE ENTREPRENEURIAL BEHAVIOUR IN ROMANIA - A GENDERED APPROACH

C. Mocanu

University of Bucharest (ROMANIA)
Jobs uncertainty but also changes of working values among people lead to the re-valuing of entrepreneurial career. The changes are even more profound in central and eastern Europe, where till three decades ago entrepreneurship was practically non-existent.

As entrepreneurship became more important in generating jobs, growth and innovation, also education for entrepreneurship started to become part of educational curriculum. Entrepreneurship education aims to provide people both with skills and knowledge that support their endeavour of putting their business ideas into practice, but also with attitudes and visions for entrepreneurial discovery. But findings on the role of entrepreneurship education on stimulating entrepreneurial behaviour are still mixed and under debate.

This paper aim is to analyse comparatively predictors for entrepreneurial behaviour among men and women in Romania. Also, the access to entrepreneurship education and its effects of entrepreneurial behaviour is analysed separately for men and women, in order to emphasize (lack of) equal opportunities. To reach my objective, I use the dataset of Flash Eurobarometer 354 “Entrepreneurship in the EU and Beyond” carried out in 2012 among a national representative sample of 1005 people aged 15+.
