The Impact of Entrepreneurship Education in High School on Long-Term Entrepreneurial Performance
(), Fredrik Andersson and Karl Wennberg
Abstract: This paper studies the long-term impact of
entrepreneurship education and training in high school on entrepreneurial
entry, performance, and survival. Using propensity score matching, we
compare three Swedish cohorts from Junior Achievement Company Program
(JACP) alumni with a matched sample of similar individuals and follow these
for up to 16 years after graduation. We find that while JACP participation
increases the long-term probability of starting a firm as well as
entrepreneurial incomes, there is no effect on firm survival.
