    Abstract

    Universities can go beyond entrepreneurship education in supporting student entrepreneurship. This study examines to what extent one Australian and four European universities do this and should do this, according to their students. A new scale for entrepreneurial support is developed and validated. Data from 2417 students show that the five universities provide much educational support, some concept development support and little business development support, that students particularly expect more concept development support and that entrepreneurial students differ from nonentrepreneurial students. The implications of these results for research and practice are discussed.
