Entrepreneurship Education Training within LMSINDO project in Indonesia


It is debatable if entrepreneurship is a matter of nature or nurture. And indeed, teaching for entrepreneurship is ideally done by entrepreneurs.

There are several ways to bring students in contact with entrepreneurs, for instance via guest lecturers, the use of exemplify cases, field visits or internships.

However, Entrepreneurship Education is for the majority taught by school teachers and university lecturers. This doesn’t have to be a hindering factor. On the contrary, with the help of entrepreneurial teaching and learning activities, one can become an entrepreneurial teacher or lecturer.

In October 2020, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences conducted its 1st training session of LMSINDO Entrepreneurship Education attended by entrepreneurship lecturers of Polbangtan Bogor and Nusa Cendana University Kupang. How entrepreneurship is being taught, was enthusiastically and deeply examined during the training. To prepare and develop the entrepreneurial knowledge of the participants further, knowledge clips and tailor-made trainings are being customized for each institutional partner.
