Abstract

The question of how to learn entrepreneurial and enterprising behavior has recently became one of the core questions in entrepreneurship education. Our approach to entrepreneurial and enterprising learning allows us investigate “how the cognitive, conative and affective self-regulating abilities interplay in entrepreneurial and enterprising learning process?” To contribute to this stream of research this paper adopts the three-partite constructs of the personality and intelligence originally introduced by Snow, Corno and Jackson (1996) and further applied to entrepreneurship education by Ruohotie and Koiranen (2000). This research consists of the two year follow-up reflections of 18 university students who participated in two consecutive study programmes of entrepreneurship education during years 2003-2006. The programme adopted entrepreneurial and enterprising pedagogy. Textual data consisted of 400 pages of reflections. Research methods and data analysis followed a two- part progression: 1) The application of Straussian Grounded Theory with the coding proceeds through open, axial and selective phases, 2) the concept map method. The results indicate that all constructs appeared in these entrepreneurship education learning interventions as well and transitions between them. However, the disappearance of affective construct in meta-level reflections emerged. The focus of this article is to present the aims and the results of this study. Although, we want to stress the methodological aspect of concept mapping. The article gives some views to develop ‘pattern matching’ and reliability of concept mapping.
