Entrepreneurship is a crucial tool for development of every country. At the same time, e-learning is recognizеd in a lot of countries as a catalyst for national development. In line with this, it is necessary rapid development of e-learning and its modalities which would be geared towards practical skills in business enterprises and entrepreneurship competencies necessary for self-reliance and national development. In this context, delivering learning content anytime anywhere is a goal that underpins the e-learning paradigm. In addition, based on new technologies, e-learning can support creativity and assists students in developing their individual potential. Namely, emphasis should be focused on the individual needs of students and personalized training programs. Computer-based educational techniques have been considered as our best hope for individualization (Croy 1998). The different levels of interaction and collaboration characteristic of new technologies facilitate personalisation of learning paths (Perrari, Namely, the development and implementation of student-centric technology will bring a need to shift to student-centered pedagogy and the ownership of learning by learners, a quality that is indispensable for fostering creativity (Woods 2002). However, personalisation of learning content delivery requires system adaptivity supported by using a suite of collaborative intelligent agents. Agent's roles in e-learning are not only to personalize the learning programs but also to create real-life business situations used for the purposes of training. The goal of a business simulation is of particular importance for the development of competencies for existing or potential entrepreneurs. Besides, intelligent agents perform specific tasks on the behalf instructors and other members of the educational community. Due to the vast possibilities of their application, scientists examine new modalities of their use. Smoe of these options will be analyzed in this paper as well. We will try to implement them in the education system in Serbia, where the e-learning is in infancy. Our proposal should help students in getting knowledge faster as well as better interaction between them, professors and business environment.
