Entrepreneurship is increasingly recognised as being vital to the regeneration and development of our economies. With the advent of the so-called “Enterprise Culture” (Keats and Abercrombie 1991), there has been widespread acceptance that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives the economy of most nations (Gorman, Hanlon and King, 1997). Entrepreneurship is perceived to bring benefits at both the macro level of economic development and also at the micro-level of personal achievement and satisfaction, (Anderson, Kirkwood and Jack, 1998). The development, and indeed the pervasion, of the Enterprise Culture has brought about academic interest in supporting this new emphasis. This paper explores some of the issues surrounding enterprise in academia by examining the teaching of entrepreneurship at Aberdeen University.
