Abstract / Description of output

The past decade has seen increased interest in entrepreneurship education (EE) outside business schools, driven both by changes in market demand and governmental policies. This has led to an expansion of embedded entrepreneurship education (EEE), where entrepreneurship is included as part of existing, non-business courses. Using the context-intervention-outcomes-mechanisms framework, we systematically review 33 cases of EEE programs to understand where, how, and with what outcomes such initiatives were implemented. Our analysis identifies four mechanisms, which explain how EEE functions: individual, team-based, organizational, and multi-organizational. Our analysis points to three key recommendations for EEE practice and three related avenues for future research: considering program scalability, intended outcomes and misaligned pedagogical models, and contextual diversity.
