This paper focuses on the literature surrounding Entrepreneurship Education for Creative Industries students. The author explains why Entrepreneurship Education is considered a key enabler for national advantage and outlines the recent policy developments surrounding the discipline, paying particular attention to the rationale for provision at Higher Education level for Creative Industries students in the UK. With around one third of all self-employed first degree graduates in the UK coming from creative arts disciplines, the author examines what Entrepreneurship Education is and makes the case that entrepreneurial skills can be learned. The author then provides an overview of the various approaches to Entrepreneurship Education, taking into consideration varying pedagogical styles, divergent course contents and delivery methods currently being adopted. The main challenges associated with Creative Enterprise Education are also confronted.
