Entrepreneurship Education on Wholesale? Considerations on Didactics and Pedagogy for Enhanced Graduate Employment in Ghana

Mavis Serwah Benneh Mensah


The premise of this paper is that entrepreneurship is a vital mechanism for economic development.  The question of who should receive entrepreneurship education should, hence, be answered from the perspective of the fundamental development challenge that such education is expected to address.  One of such challenges facing Ghana is graduate unemployment.  The national economy is increasingly being tainted with jobless growth and graduate unemployment.  The paper conceptually explores some of the causes of graduate unemployment in Ghana and presents entrepreneurship education as an important means of dealing with this development challenge.  Consequently, it is recommended that Ghana’s education policy makers should intensify the re-alignment of institutional aspirations and mechanisms in the education sector with those of the national economy, particularly, issues pertaining to job creation and graduate employment.

Keywords: entrepreneurship, economic growth, graduate unemployment, entrepreneurship education.
