Sammanfattning

This paper advocates for a societal perspective in contrast to the individual perspective that is dominant in entrepreneurship education to understand the limited impact from this education - Sweden makes an example. The European Union has since the 1990s and increasingly since 2004 (European_Commission, 2004) encouraged the member states to invest in entrepreneurship education for national growth and as a solution to unemployment. Data analysed come from Swedish registers of individuals born in 1974-1976. Women and the tertiary educated are seen as an underexploited source of entrepreneurial potential; women because fewer of them are self-employed than men, and the tertiary educated because they are expected to be innovative, start businesses and employ others. Women were highly unlikely to become self-employed; partly because of the indirect effect, the gendered educational choices, and partly because of the direct effect of gender discrimination.
