Abstract


This study examines the impact of institution-community entrepreneurship education ecosystem (ICEEE) on business education graduates’ jobs creation skill. A descriptive follow up study of 329 Business education degree graduate students in the year 2017 and 2018, using a questionnaire, mean, cluster mean of the responses, and multiple regression analysis revealed that the students learned product-production using the model as well-established small-scale businesses; although not many jobs were created. The effectiveness of the ICEEE model can be experimented in different fields of study to equip students with requisite knowledge and skills for self-reliance.
