Questions of Entrepreneurship Education for International Students

Abstract

Micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises are the accelerators of national economies, and the existence, the successful performance and the development of these enterprises play an important role in developed and underdeveloped regions of the world.
The aim of the paper is to give insight into the special topics and methods of entrepreneurship education for international students at the Gödöllő Campus of the Szent István University, in Hungary. Entrepreneurship education and enterprise management subjects are taught at 3 levels of education: bachelor, master and doctoral level, both in Hungarian and English languages. The basics of the courses are the same, but the education of international students raises special questions. These issues are related to the different types of enterprises, the different rules and regulations of enterprise management and the different attitudes and cultural-traditional background of the international students. The entrepreneurship education courses focus on case studies, learning-by-doing methods and teamwork of students from different countries, which may help them to prepare for their future jobs in multicultural environment. Our paper summarizes the experiences and the curriculum development of the past six years.
