Abstract

We propose a model for the learning process in technology entrepreneurship based on the findings from an in‐depth case study of an engineering degree that emphasizes technology entrepreneurship. Taking learning paradigms from entrepreneurship education into account, we specify the links between pedagogical approaches, activities, and learning contexts and specific technology entrepreneurship learning outcomes. For example, we examine how the use of existential learning with self‐directed activities in real‐world contexts contributes to achieving high‐level entrepreneurial competencies such as the ability to critically self‐reflect on the choices made by the technology‐based venture. As such, we contribute to the definition of teaching models for technology entrepreneurship education.
