Abstract

Nurturing innovation has become a central rather than peripheral focus of entrepreneur- ship education in most Business Schools in North America and elsewhere. Yet the link between pedagogy and innovative entrepreneurship is under explored. Using a case study approach this study explores experiential pedagogy - teaching practices consistent with ex- periential learning theory- in a Business School in a developing country. The finding shows that use experiential pedagogical methods used in compulsory entrepreneurship education stimulates innovation learning outcomes. Specifically, student business start-up and use of practitioners in class strongly inspire students attitude and affinity for innovative en- trepreneurship. Also, curriculum and pedagogy are contextualized to achieve maximum impact in a developing country. The contributions to entrepreneurship education theory and implications for practice are discussed.
