What value is created by entrepreneurship education? How could any such value created? Both questions are addressed within this paper. It is proposed that research into entrepreneurship education needs to incorporate a consideration of the ontological challenge that accompanies the development of knowledge and skills that may not be used by students immediately upon graduation. This paper reports on the author's own findings and those of a colleague who has also investigated the development of student value at UT AS. Several contemporary issues related to entrepreneurship education are introduced and discussed throughout the paper.
