The impact of Education and Training systems on Entrepreneurship: A comparative approach between the United Kingdom and France

VIEWS: 35 PAGES: 37

This study seeks to identify and compare the impact of education and training systems on entrepreneurship in France and in the United Kingdom. After defining the main concepts as well as the theoretical background related to this study, this article will review the main recent and relevant writings on the topic. The study relies to a large extent on a comparative survey conducted on a representative sample of 50 entrepreneurs randomly selected from each country. The panel is made of great as well as average and small companies from leading and innovative sectors of the economy such as new technologies, telecom, aerospace and engineering. The most striking result of this survey is the difference in the number of self-made entrepreneurs which is greater in the United-Kingdom. This enquiry enables us to define a certain number of categories which may complement Mark Casson's and Alain Fayolle's. Both the two higher education systems as well as their entrepreneurial orientation are analyzed in order to try to understand why there is such a difference and how the two systems could be improved.
