Abstract

Entrepreneurship education has gained an important role in the eyes of both policy makers, as well as researchers across the globe. The effects of the sudden growth can be felt through the increasing support provided by governments especially in the higher learning institutions. This recent rapid growth and development in entrepreneurship courses and programs may be due to the belief that the entrepreneurial competencies required for successful venturing can be taught, or at the very least enhanced by entrepreneurial education and learning. Despite the monumental international growth of the discipline over the last three decades, no significant empirical work has been conducted on the lecturers‟ relevant educational qualifications necessary for effective teaching of entrepreneurship courses. This study is therefore, aimed at identifying the most relevant educational qualifications needed by lecturers teaching entrepreneurship courses in Higher Learning Institutions (HLIs) for both Malaysia and Nigeria. The data was collected through quantitative research approach using a structured questionnaire developed from extensive literature, involving five (5) point Likert Scale.
