IJSRA conceptual framework for performance management of the entrepreneurship education policy in the Nigerian universities

Abdulrazaq Abdulmajeed Adigun, Federal Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development, Nigeria

Purpose: Looks essentially at the mismatch between the theory and practice of graduate entrepreneurship in Nigeria against the backdrop of lingering unemployment. Specifically x-rays the entrepreneurship education policy introduced in 2006 in search of a framework for evaluating its implementation across Universities in Nigeria.
Design/Methodology/Approach: Reviews the performance of the policy in the context of the Global Entrepreneurship & Development Index (GEDI) model for evaluating entrepreneurship performance across countries which relies on a number of international benchmarks.
Findings: Identifies the lack of supportive entrepreneurship environment as a major factor responsible for the absence of correlation between enterprise education, high motivations and aspirations gathered at the University towards self-employment by graduates and actual career decisions in a business establishment.
Originality/Value: The effort through this study to promote graduate entrepreneurship as part of strategies to combat unemployment and its attendant socio-economic problems in Nigeria contributes to global poverty eradication initiatives.
Keywords: Entrepreneurship; Entrepreneurship education; Environmental support; Graduate entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship performance
