Entrepreneurship in Higher Education is Critical to Development

It is impossible to consider economic development or reduction of unemployment in Nigeria, without first considering the indices that crate its existence primarily,
the curriculum to system of teaching, and execution of practical learning gives an introductory idea of the fact that the Nigerian graduate may be prepared to serve, but not to create. Many courses in Nigerian universities have nothing to do with business management, development or business start up courses taken in sciences and Arts predominate on the technicalities of the courses and not the direct application for profitability outside the walls of the institution.
Competitiveness, innovation and economic growth depend on being able to produce future leaders with the skills, attitudes and behaviour to be entrepreneurial and to act at the same time in a socially responsible way. Entrepreneurship is not only about creating business plans and starting new ventures. It is also about creativity, innovation and growth, a way of thinking and acting relevant to all parts of the economy and society as well as the whole surrounding ecosystem.
This interdependence comprises both institutional rules and environment conditions that define the range of socially and economically viable entrepreneurial opportunities and they way in which entrepreneurs and other stakeholders shape these surrounding institutional and environment conditions. It is important to start as early as possible at all levels of formal education. It should be integrated into the education system of primary and secondary schools as well as higher and further education. For effective entrepreneurship education, the curricula over the years must be consistent and coordinated and entrepreneurship education should continue at higher education institutions.
Entrepreneurship programmes and modulus can have various objectives, such as:
a.  Developing entrepreneurial drive among students (raising awareness and motivation).
b.  Developing the entrepreneurial ability to identify and exploit opportunities.
Training students in the skills they need to set up a business and manage its growth European commission 2008. Without the influence of education in introducing entrepreneurship to the average Nigerian student, it will be difficult for unemployment to be reduced in the country, as it is important to encourage students to think and act entrepreneurially as well as ethically and socially responsible.
