Abstract [en]

This paper addresses an answer to the question: does entrepreneurial education lead to establishment of new firms?. The research in the paper was based on a survey with a questionnaire. The respondent sample was former students at Luleå University of Technology) and the questionnaire was sent to two different groups of respondents, a Respond group (who had passed an entrepreneurial education) and a Control group (who had not passed an entrepreneurial education). The respondents had the same educational background unless the entrepreneurial education. In addition to the survey three (short) telephone interviews were performed. The paper shows that individuals attending entrepreneurial education are more prone to start firms, to start several firms and to create larger firms, compared to the Control group. The telephone interviews show in addition to this that there is an entrepreneurial thinking amongst the persons interviewed. To sum up: the answer on the question “does entrepreneurial education lead to the establishment of new firms?” – can out of the presented results be formulated as yes!
