The present study contributes to the discussion on entrepreneurship education by exploring the current state of integration of entrepreneurship in universities in Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. Agricultural Colleges and Programs. The findings suggest that Ag Entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly important in Agriculture and it is reflected in entrepreneurship courses, and extra-curriculum initiatives being developed. In addition, the courses taught are focused on developing entrepreneurial capabilities such as opportunity recognition and assessment, risk management, and networking to create value
