Do schools and universities teach entrepreneurship?

During lower secondary, secondary and higher education, young people have limited possibilities of improvingthe knowledge and developingthe attitudes needed by young entrepreneurs. Education prepares them for being an employee, not an entrepreneur who will create jobs in the future.

What to do in order to increase the effectiveness of education and spread of entrepreneurial attitudes and traits among young people will be the topic of discussion between the experts during the “Education and entrepreneurship” panel discussion. The panel is intended to be a continuation of the round table discussions organised during the previous editions of the Congress – a debate on the current state of entrepreneurship education in Poland and across the world. The invited local and foreign experts will talk, among other things, about the effectiveness of entrepreneurial education in Poland, other EU member states and the USA.The goal of the meeting is to produce recommendations for improving the system of entrepreneurship education in Poland.

The session will be held as a part of the V European Congress of SME on the 13th of October 2015 at 14.00 to 16.00 at the International Congress Center in Katowice. Participation in the Congress is free of charge.
