- The twenty-first century has dictated that universities expand their outlook, transform their roles, excite the new student population and produce relevant graduates with competitive edge to meet the challenges of the globalised world. They are required to meet the demands of various stakeholders such as the financiers, students and employers. Previously tasked to provide education to a small group of elites who will become the upper echelons of society, universities now aim to produce mass groups of graduates who are able to contribute to achievement of the vision and missions of the employing organisations. Previously sufficiently financed universities today have to seek creative ways to generate additional sources of funding. This has given rise to what has now become known as entrepreneurship. Today the entrepreneurial university appears to be fast dotting the education landscape. This has given rise to some basic questions, such as: What is an entrepreneurial university? What are its characteristics, models and some of the applicable practices? This book is an attempt to answer these questions and more.
