Xianming WANG


With the rapid pace of globalization, uncertainty, and discontinuous knowledge-based society, for a country, innovation and entrepreneurship have become the main competence. After the World War Ⅱ, small and medium sized enterprises have promoted economic productivity and offered new job opportunities. Based on this, Entrepreneurship education has become a rapid new field in the universities. Entrepreneurship education is one of the basic ways to solve the employment problem of university students. At present, university enterprise education in China has just started, facing many problems. This paper attempts to make a theoretic reflection on problems of entrepreneurship education in China and make suggestive countermeasure.
