The modern demand for entrepreneurship and the vast efforts deployed in delivering entrepreneurship education (Nabi et al., 2017; Rideout and Gray, 2013), can be said to represent a social need in knowledge-driven societies (Romer, 1994). These developments present a challenge for educators and traditional academic teaching. Thus, despite its rapid growth (e.g., Kakouris & Georgiadis, 2016; Katz, 2003; Kuratko, 2005; Neck and Corbett; 2018), entrepreneurship education has not achieved its own methods, objectives and, arguably, legitimacy in academia. Too frequently,it is still thought of as an optional extra for alumni’s career development, or answering a social trendimposed by external policies and the media (Fayolle, 2013; Palalić, Ramadani, Ðilović, Dizdarević andRatten, 2017).
