Entrepreneurship education has become the new mantle of business schools in the promotion of economic transformation through entrepreneurial graduates. However, the challenge comes when questions relating to how and who should teach entrepreneurship remain unanswered. This paper explains how the reinforcement of the entrepreneurial curriculum can foster the development of entrepreneurial values among university students in Uganda. 522 final year university students were surveyed. Structural equation modeling (SEM) and analysis of moments structures (AMOS) were used in analysis. Findings revealed that experiential learning, interaction with successful entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial lecturers lead to high levels of entrepreneurial values of students. Entrepreneurial values and entrepreneurial curriculum measurement models are proposed. Recommendations and implications of the findings are discussed.
