Abstract


Entrepreneurship education appears to be a promising avenue for developing entrepreneurial skills among young people, this tendency being present in several countries. School is a privileged environment and is targeted since young people are key players in promoting economic growth. The appropriate teaching method for achieving academic and entrepreneurial goals seems to be the project-based approach. In this regard, entrepreneurship is a privileged context for realization of interdisciplinary projects in order to give meaning to the learning experience. The objective of this study is to describe the process of implementation and deployment of interdisciplinary projects in the context of the entrepreneurial school. Eight individual interviews were conducted with school staff from an entrepreneurial school where several interdisciplinary projects were going on. Our results show that the teacher assumes a key role as a guide throughout the interdisciplinary project in making sure that the education program objectives are attained. However, the lack of collaboration among the teachers remains a challenge in order to equip and help them with the realization of the interdisciplinary projects. Solutions can be identified to facilitate and perpetuate the implementation of these projects in this entrepreneurial context.
