Abstract

The aim of this study is to compare the achievement of students’ entrepreneurial competences when developing a business plan, depending on whether this is developed individually or in group. In order to analyse these effects we present an empirical study to know the role played by business plans and teamwork in achieving entrepreneurial competences. We will conduct the analysis from the point of view of the perception of student’s achievement of competences and from the point of view of the real achievement of these skills. In this sense, we use data obtained from assessment rubrics and questionnaires distributed among 254 students of the Bachelor in Business Administration at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC). The questionnaires measure the students’ perception of competences achievement, while the assessment rubrics measure the students’ real competences achievement according to their grades. To sum up, we can point out that teamwork involves a greater perception and a greater achievement of entrepreneurial skills when they are developed through a business plan. We must therefore encourage teamwork skills among students as they generate positive results in terms of entrepreneurial skills.
