entrepreneurship curriculum at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) Faculty of Commerce and Botho University,

institutions are the main drivers of curricula development and review. Major factors considered in curriculum

design included students, industry needs, legislation, competition as well as external examiners. The findings
