During the last two decades entrepreneurship education has grown rapidly in the West, and has acquired academic legitimization and respectability. Leading Indian management schools have, however, started offering entrepreneurship education only recently, motivated by the global success of Indian entrepreneurs. This article examines entrepreneurial intent and perceptions on entrepreneurship education of Indian management graduates through a field survey. The findings have been benchmarked with that of Sloan School graduates, an institution that is considered to be in the forefront of entrepreneurship education. Based on these observations, and through the lessons learnt from two decades of entrepreneurial education experience, the paper suggests key issues that must be considered for providing excellent entrepreneurship education in India.
