Entrepreneurship and Small Business

ESB success stories / My story

The U.S. Department of Labor and the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) both cite statistics that underscore the benefits of entrepreneurship education. These benefits include improved academic performance, school attendance, interest in completing their post-secondary education, an increase in occupational aspirations, as well as leadership behavior. (Encouraging Future Innovation: Youth Entrepreneurship Education, US Department of Labor.) A study by Grunwald Associates further suggests that when certification is added to curriculum, statistics such as academic performance, attendance, dropout rates, and grade point averages also improve. (Grunwald Associates LLC. (2012). Tracing Student Performance in Career and Professional Education: Technology Coursework Related to Better Attendance, Higher GPAs in Florida.)
