Abstract

Within this research project potential concepts concerning the frame of Entrepreneurship Education (EE) will be identified and their importance for the conception of corresponding learning arrangements is analyzed by using the educational framework of threshold concepts. Threshold concepts already have been developed for economics in particular as well as for the area of accounting and management education and have been successfully embedded in corresponding teaching and learning arrangements. In this context, threshold concepts are defined as concepts, which fundamentally transform the learners’ perspective on a discipline as well as on their own identity. Therefore, this research project aims at merging theoretical preparatory work from both the areas of entrepreneurship as well as education literature in terms of threshold concepts in order to investigate the following research question: Which threshold concepts can be identified within Entrepreneurship Education?
