About Entrepreneurship Education at Community Colleges

The U.S. has 1,195 public, private and tribal community colleges and 11.5 million students are enrolled in these schools. These students represent 46% of all U.S. undergraduates and 41% of first-time freshmen.1

The field of entrepreneurship education first emerged in the 1970's, with the first courses at community colleges starting in the early 70's.

Entrepreneurship education programs at community colleges have two student types: students enrolled in the formal education system and the "out of school' potential and existing business owners.
