Abstract

Recognising the importance of entrepreneurship education for students with opportunities and potential for choosing a career as an entrepreneur, the Ministry of Education has shown their commitment to the implementation.Hence universities, in this instance, are given full responsibility to ensure the success of this policy. The purpose of this paper is to examine the roles played by universities in promoting entrepreneurship among its students.The sample of this study consists of 417 undergraduate students (in business, law, computing and information technology (IT) programmes) from Universiti Utara Malaysia. Six hundred Malay version questionnaires were randomly distributed to selected classes during a regular lecture period in Semester 1 & 2 2012/2013 Session.After screening, a total of 417 or 69.5% out of 600 questionnaires were deemed completed and usable.Overall, the study found that students rated the role played by university as considerably high.Recommendations and future research are made based on the findings of the study.
