ADEOYE, Jacob Oruamen, ISERE, Victoria Oshuare Merab, IMONIKHE, Justina Selimetu


Every country faces the challenges posed by unemployment and shrinking economies and while some are winning, more are actually in and out of recession as the years roll by..  This trend has opened up the need to help more people become entrepreneurial.  Entrepreneurship will help improve job availability.  The population of the study consisted of all final year students from three tertiary institutions in Edo state.  The population of the final year students in these three tertiary institutions was about 30,000 during the 2019/2020 academic section from which a sample of 529 respondents were randomly selected using the simple random sampling technique.  The study revealed among others that there is significant difference between gender as well as area of study and student’s attitude towards entrepreneurship education; and also that there is no significant difference between age and students’ attitude towards entrepreneurship education.  The study recommends that students should be assisted to have free hands-on-training in industries of their choice during holidays so they can practicalize the theories learnt in class and that the lectures and practical sections should be made more attractive by giving specialized training to entrepreneurship educators and resource persons.
