ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to present the methodology and results of a study on the role played by higher education institutions — universities and business schools from different master's degree programs —, when responding to the demands of potential entrepreneurs who are seeking to get the tools and develop the skills necessary to eventually become successful. We have proposed the use of a methodology based on a survey of students currently enrolled in master's programs, to get to know their entrepreneurial drive, the tools they consider appropriate to achieve their degrees and what they think is the best way to start a new business. Also the ultimate goal of the study is based on the results: making a proposal of academic content, theoretical and / or practical as deemed necessary, to add to these programs in order to improve the training required by future entrepreneurs.
