    Abstract

    What effect does education have on entrepreneurial passion? A study conducted among business school students in Pakistan's largest private university, the University of Lahore, investigates the relationship between entrepreneurial education, entrepreneurial passion, and entrepreneurial self-efficacy. The findings show a strong positive relationship between entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial passion. They also show that entrepreneurship education affects entrepreneurial self-efficacy, which in turn stimulates an individual's entrepreneurial passion. Besides contributing to the theoretical literature on the relationship between entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial passion, these results provide educators and public policy-makers with guidance on how to develop entrepreneurial passion in the business leaders of the future.
