CHAPTER ONE

1.1 BACKGROUND

Entrepreneurship has been recognized as an important element in the dynamics of modern economies. Entrepreneurship which can be understood as “the mindset and process to create and develop economic activity” has significantly raised interest among practitioners, scientists and politicians over the last decades1. The last decade also witness a rapid spread in entrepreneurship education. The inevitability of its global acceptance is occasioned by its capability of new venture creation, promotion of entrepreneurial aspiration and contribution of economic development. This impressive and rapid growth of entrepreneurship is attributed to the power of education in promoting social, economic, political, and spiritual well-being of an individual and social development.

Education has been the instrument in the development of man to enable him live an effective and meaningful life and to be able to contribute towards the development of society in which he finds himself. Many colleges and universities, various government and non-government agencies, provide entrepreneurial programs and training for the development of entrepreneurship3. Fostering entrepreneurship among students has become an important topic in universities and governments’ as well as in research. The positive role of universities in developing entrepreneurial intention and to explore the factors influencing entrepreneurial behaviour of students are confirmed by a number of studies4 that help to explain the Emergence of entrepreneurial intention among students as well as suggested that stimulation of entrepreneurship education can influence the students’ attitudes and knowledge towards entrepreneurship. The introduction of entrepreneurship programs into the curriculum of the universities would enhance students’ attributes and further develop awareness of entrepreneurial opportunities and skills to form entrepreneurial Venture.4

Recent studies have emphasized that entrepreneurial attitude and knowledge of the students influence their entrepreneurial behaviour. Ayiribi5 found that students in tertiary institution in Lagos state have positive attitude towards entrepreneurship. Any one that is entrepreneurial inclined will be creative in generating ideas and will also posses the ability to recognise, analyze and take advantage of a business opportunity. The desire for entrepreneurship among college students were borne out of the desire to be one’s own boss, financial autonomy, avoidance of unemployment syndrome and retrenchment in work places. Mathew et al showed that a gender difference existed in the entrepreneurial aspiration of colleges’ students and Lee reported that new venture creation and desire to establish one is a male dominated activity.

However, the unemployment situation in Nigeria is a source of concern to both the government and populace. The problem is compounded by factors such as early retirement, job losses and almost zero employment growth in most government and business establishment. The country is at the same time experiencing astronomical increase in the number of institution of higher learning particularly with the introduction of private universities. These institutions would turn out graduates yearly to seek jobs in an already saturated job markets. The policy option is to promote self- employment and entrepreneurship as presently clamoured by stakeholders. A research effort in this direction is therefore worthwhile. It is in view of this background that this study was conducted to assess the knowledge and attitude of radiography students towards entrepreneurship.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM 

  • The entrepreneurial aspiration of radiography students has not been documented.
  • To the best of my knowledge there is Paucity of literature that has surveyed the knowledge and attitude of Radiography students towards entrepreneurship.
  • Mathew et al found that a gender difference existed in the entrepreneurial aspiration of colleges’ students and Lee reported that new venture creation and desire to establish one is a male dominated activity. Is this also true for radiography students? Let’s find out.

 

1.3 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY

This research would

  • Determine the entrepreneurial knowledge of Radiography students.
  • Determine the attitude of radiography students towards entrepreneurship.
  • Determine if gender influences the attitude and aspiration of radiography student towards entrepreneurship.

1.4 HYPOTHESIS

H2: There is no gender difference in the entrepreneurial attitude of radiography students.

H 2: The entrepreneurial aspiration of radiography students does not depend on gender.

1.3 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The research finding will

  • Be useful in developing strategies that will enhance entrepreneurship in radiography curriculum.
  • Also help radiography educators in selecting teaching methods that will enhance entrepreneurship among radiography students.

1.5 SCOPE OF THE STUDY

Second to final year radiography students in university of Nigeria Enugu campus.

1.6 LITERATURE REVIEW        

Research has been carried out on the entrepreneurship propensity of university students as a source of future entrepreneur and the result reveals that their attitude and knowledge of entrepreneurship are likely to shape their inclination to start their own business in future.6

   Shepherd et al opined that any one that is entrepreneurial inclined will be creative in generating ideas and also posses the ability to recognise, analyze and take advantage of a business opportunity.7

To increase the level of entrepreneurial initiative among students, it is needful to increase positive attitudes towards entrepreneurship, so attitudes can be viewed as the stepping stone to Entrepreneurial intentions.7

However, the attitudinal approach has been utilised in many fields including in evaluating entrepreneurship education. As a given behaviour will depend on the person’s attitude towards that behaviour, attitude would measure the extent of one’s value positively or negatively.8

There are numerous interconnections between attitudes and various interrelated objects. Shepherd and Douglas9 examined people who are in the process of choosing between career alternatives and expected that these attitudes are associated with the degree of intention to become an entrepreneur. These attitudes were those toward independence, financial risk, hard work and income and ‘positive’ attitudes towards all four of these objects should be expected to generate an intention to undertake entrepreneurship activity.
