Transforming Nigerian Economy through Integrative Entrepreneurial Curricular Offerings in Nigerian Higher Education

Francis Akubuilo


Nigerian education has an important role to play in addressing the high rate of poverty, crime, youth and graduate unemployment. Education policy makers must find ways of incorporating entrepreneurship into the school curricula especially in the higher education sector.  Engaging the youth in their dreams as they steer their own innovations could help reduce unemployment, as well as in helping to address the crime rate in many Nigerian cities.

This paper calls for a paradigm shift in the curricular dispensation of Nigerian educational offerings that inculcates entrepreneurism in nation’s educational offerings. It calls for an attitude change that fosters entrepreneurial skills among learners where skill building and innovation become anchored in most subject offerings. It proffers recommendations that could be articulated when underpinning entrepreneurship into curriculum.
