Correlation between Entrepreneurship Education and Students’ Entrepreneurial Intentions: A Case of the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania




A study was undertaken at the University of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania to establish the relationship between receiving entrepreneurship education at university level and student teachers’ intention to be involved in entrepreneurial work. Its main objective was to find statistically a significant correlation coefficient between the variables of the study. Literature had shown that there were empirical disagreements regarding the direction and strength of a correlation between the variables in question. The study employed correlation research methodology. The target population was Bachelor of Education in Commerce and Bachelor of Education in Adult and Community Education student-teachers at the School of Education. The results have shown that there is no statistically significant relationship between university entrepreneurial education and the entrepreneurial intentions of student-teacher sat the University of Dar es Salaam. The null hypothesis was accepted because the point biserial correlation = 0.071, p-value (0.681) was greater than the study’s alpha value (0.05). There was no statistically significant correlation between university entrepreneurship education and having high entrepreneurial intentions among student-teachers at the School of Education, University of Dar es Salaam, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere Mlimani campus. This was because rpb (0.071) was not significantly different from zero at 34 degrees of freedom,0.05 level of significance because it was below +.3494. The study’s consequence is that these findings justify further investigation of the study’s foci in order to arrive at a conclusive irrefutable viewpoint. It appears that additional investigation is warranted.
