Abstract

Provision of a viable entrepreneurship education for national development will not only assist greatly in ameliorating the problem of unemployment among the school leavers and graduates of tertiary institutions, but also minimize the various crimes often committed by many jobless Nigerian youths. Acquisition of entrepreneurial skills, through viable entrepreneurship education helps an individual to become an effective entrepreneur who can properly coordinate other factors of production such as capital, land and labour in order to make the best use of them in the creation of utilities, resources and wealth, which pave way to national development. Educational management helps in initiating and sustaining a viable entrepreneurship education through the formulation of realistic and achievable goals of viable entrepreneurship education; designing the curriculum; determining the number of learners to cater for and consequent number of teaching and non-teaching staff required including the artisans and other resource persons in the community; deciding the location and design of the buildings needed; mapping out strategies for effective funding and appraising of the entrepreneurship education.
