This literature review critically examines the body of research focused on the impact of entrepreneurship education on student outcomes. In the global economy, entrepreneurship is a key driver of economic growth, innovation, and job creation. As such, entrepreneurship education has gained significant attention in academic and policy circles worldwide. This paper reviews a range of studies, focusing on various aspects of entrepreneurship education, including pedagogical approaches, program design, and contextual factors. It also considers the role of psychological traits and cultural factors in mediating the impact of entrepreneurship education. The existing literature suggests that entrepreneurship education can have a significant impact on student outcomes, including entrepreneurial intentions, the development of entrepreneurial skills, and career outcomes. However, the evidence is not conclusive, and further research is needed to fully understand these relationships. This review highlights the complexity of these relationships, noting that the impact of entrepreneurship education can be mediated by various factors. It also identifies gaps and limitations in the current research, suggesting areas for future exploration. Despite these gaps, the existing research provides valuable insights for educators, policymakers, and future researchers, underscoring the importance of continued investment in entrepreneurship education and the need for ongoing research to optimize its design and delivery.
