Abstract

Entrepreneurship education programs are proliferating in universities and colleges in the country due to the importance and increasing acceptance of entrepreneurship. However, one may argue the purpose of having entrepreneurship education to those who are not interested in starting a business. What do entrepreneurship subjects contribute towards students generally? The purpose of entrepreneurship education is not only to nurture entrepreneurs, but to inculcate entrepreneurial orientation and characteristics to the students. Therefore, this study investigates how entrepreneurial orientation that has been gained by students in entrepreneurship subjects, influence their academic grades. So far, there is lack of empirical study on this matter creating a literature gap. The study is done at Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia. The result shows that three elements of entrepreneurial orientation (risk-taking, proactiveness and competitive aggressiveness) positively influence academic grades while the remaining elements of entrepreneurial orientation (autonomy and innovativeness) do not influence academic grades
