Abstract

The research was carried out in Ethiopian public universities with the purpose of examining the status of universities’ strategy support towards the effectives of entrepreneurship education in the country. Multistage, stratified and proportionate sampling method were used to select the universities. Interview with top management of the universities, questionnaires from entrepreneurship teachers (who were selected purposefully) and strategy documents were the data sources and collections tools employed in this research. Qualitative data analysis and simple descriptive statistics such as percentage were used for the analysis purpose, and the result were compared with previous empirical findings and guidelines for entrepreneurial university developed by EC-OECD (2012). The finding of this study revealed that the strategy of the university is fall short in aligning entrepreneurship education in its strategy plan and mission statement; there was no strong and active efforts to promote entrepreneurship and innovation agenda to be heard and understood among university staffs and students; entrepreneurial attitude and behaviours as well as staffs those who prepare and disseminates best teaching and pedagogical materials and shared their best experiences in the university were not found highly encouraged and supported; and there was not special budget and financial arrangement to support entrepreneurial programs. Hence, the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education in this these universities remained questionable and underemphasized.
