In this chapter, we examine the influence of university-based education on students’ entrepreneurship capabilities. While the prevalence of entrepreneurship education is dramatically increasing worldwide, the education that business and engineering students receive throughout their academic experience wields a direct influence on several entrepreneurship capabilities. The purpose of this chapter is to assess educational influences on three specific entrepreneurship capabilities – networking skill, proactiveness, and self-confidence. Moreover, we aim to raise awareness for faculty and students in various programs as they form networks and optimize the knowledge obtained throughout their education. We test the hypotheses using data collected from 927 university students.
