Abstract
This paper investigates the entrepreneurship education concerns in South African
universities through Enactus (formerly known as SIFE) South Africa (SA) students.
Stratified sampling was used to gather data from a population of Enactus SA students
represented at the “Enactus Annual National Competition 2013”. A sample size of 355
students’ responded to the research instrument (questionnaire). The findings of the study
suggest that Enactus students’ entrepreneurship education or knowledge is better than
most ordinary students in South Africa, since these students are trained
entrepreneurially through Enactus entrepreneurial projects. The need for universities to
produce graduates that are ready to engage in entrepreneurship activity is more severe in
the recent South African youth unemployment crisis. Recommendations for universities
are provided in the findings and discussions of the study.
