Entrepreneurial Role Models and Online-based Entrepreneurship Education: Results from an Ongoing RCT

In this experiment we will investigate the influence of two online-based entrepreneurship programmes and compare the effects of a programme with experiential design with a programme which is based on lectures by entrepreneurial role models. During this process we will be able to assess in which way the educational dimensions of “mastery experience” and “vicarious learning” influence the entrepreneurial self-efficacy of young pupils as well as their inclination to participate in high-growth oriented entrepreneurial activities. 

Policy implications 
Entrepreneurship training among school-age children can increase the likelihood that students express desire to become entrepreneurs and basic understanding of entrepreneurial skills.
