Abstract

Engaging in the entrepreneurship programs whilst studying will cultivate an interest in entrepreneurship, improve knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial experience of students. Therefore, stakeholders should play a major role in ensuring that students have a strong entrepreneurial behavior after graduation. This study aims to assess student evaluation on the entrepreneurship program in polytechnics. The sample consisted of 296 students from five zones and participated in entrepreneurship programs. Survey design was used for evaluating the program. Questionnaire was designed to gauge the evaluation on institutional dimensions which include the level of support by management, the influence of family and community, the knowledge and entrepreneurial skills of students the implementers. The study found that the students' assessment is at the level between moderately high and high. The highest mean value derived from the knowledge and skills of implementers, followed by management support and the knowledge and skills of the students. However, the lowest mean value obtained from the influence of family and community. Thus, several aspects need improvement by the stakeholders and aspects which show higher mean values should be retained or refined.
