Abam Arikpo, Benjamin James Inyang

Abstract


The study investigated the difference in entrepreneurial behaviour of self employed College of Agriculture graduates vis-à-vis their counterparts who were either government employed, organised private sector employed, or unemployed. The samples (80 College of Agriculture graduates) were purposively drawn from all College of Agriculture graduates found in Cross River State, Nigeria. The Graduate Self Employed Seeking Behaviour Inventory (GSSBI) was the instrument employed in the investigation. The data gathered were analyzed using the t-test statistic. The result revealed that, there was no significant difference in entrepreneurial behaviour of College of Agriculture graduates in self employment, government employment, organised private sector employment and unemployment (p<0.05). The study provided some support to the notion that a realistic curriculum framework could present valuable educational content and context that would help graduates gain and reinforce appropriate entrepreneurial behaviour.
