Every university must increasingly more face one of their most important goals – to prepare students for career and real work in real organizations. Students’ employability is the criterion according to which best HEIs are rated. At the same time, entrepreneurship education is on the rise and many universities and educational approaches show the importance of entrepreneurship competencies.
There is an overlap between the broad set of competencies that contribute to graduate employability and the characteristics of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial behavior. Any successful employer values an employee with creative ideas, problem-solving skills, and social skills. This set characterizes an entrepreneurial person but also refers to high employability. In order to be employable students should possess the skills, knowledge and personal attributes that would be noticed by employers. Employers value enterprising people for their fresh thinking and what that means to the workplace, for the skills to bring new business idea, venture, product, or service to life, for being ready to take risks in order to achieve success.
