Abstract
Assessing the effects of entrepreneurship education in different national and cultural context or the type of universities is an important direction of the research field. Based on the commonly used model and scale in previous studies and adopting quasi-experiments with control group design this study conducted a questionnaire survey among the students in 15 private universities in Hubei province in China according to whether the respondents had received systematic school entrepreneurship education. And the effects of entrepreneurship education in the universities were assessed by using t-test and ANOVA to compare the sample in the experimental group and control group. The results showed that the entrepreneurship education in the private universities positively impacted the students on their attitude towards entrepreneurship, perceived behavioral control and entrepreneurial intentions. This study is significant to understand the effects of entrepreneurship education in private universities in China and expands the insight of the related research field by the new context.
