Abstract

Current research shows entrepreneurship potential among technical university graduates is particularly high given the immediate applicability of their skills and expertise in many different fields. Yet, entrepreneurship teaching among technical universities in Romania remains quite underdeveloped. European Union development strategies name entrepreneuship and social entrepreneurship initiatives as a particular driver of employment and means for reducing unemployment rates among the young population. The paper we propose aims to comparatively analyse the curricula for entrepreneurship teaching among six Romanian technical univerities. The added value of the article lies in the fact that it offers the first analysis of this kind. The article is the first step in a more in depth analysis aimed at ilustrating means for better adapting the curricula within the technical field to the needs of the labour market. It is particularly aimed at university staff who can use the results in order to better adapt the offering to the current context of sustained entrepreneurial support.
