Abstract

Meeting new challenges calls for new priorities in education. It means an interactive style and education based on individual needs and abilities that should provide a completely new dimension of gaining knowledge and make learning a more convenient process. The course curricula have to be devised in view of the experience acquired from either the entrepreneurial environment or any other environment, depending on the type of the curriculum. It is necessary to stress that there is little documented evidence of what speciic factors within the curricula are effective in fostering entrepreneurial abilities in students through education and by raising entrepreneurial intentions after students’ graduation. Our research investigates ive main questions: (i) What is the meaning of freedom in learning? (ii) What does freedom in learning mean to students? (iii)What should be done to increase freedom in learning and foster individuality? (iv) How can we encourage the entrepreneurial abilities of students through education with focus on women? and (v) In what direction should educational strategies be developed? The research methodology in this research is qualitative in nature. This approach involves carrying out in-depth interviews with respondents from different countries all around the world (respondents were mainly from Serbia, Iran, India, USA, Nigeria, Canada, China, Pakistan, and Philippines). Our research shows that the modern business environment should be accompanied by the change in educational environment. Namely, it is necessary to offer multi-dimensional relationships between course concepts on entrepreneurship and the community based on entrepreneurial experiences. The new educational strategy also needs freedom in learning and teaching and an active mode of learning inluences innovative personality development, which creates something unique and turns it into an entrepreneurial activity. Furthermore, the new entrepreneurship educational strategy should provide a more women-centered approach. It is also impossible to achieve all new educational advantages without close relationships between governments, schools and women’s organizations. In other words, only their synergies allow the education system to be eficient and can bring prosperity for women.
