Summary/Abstract: The evaluation of the efficiency of entrepreneurship education must be in the attention of those responsible at national level, in order to provide the necessary framework for the development of entrepreneurial skills considered one of the key competencies needed in the future. The aim of this article is to evaluate the effectiveness of entrepreneurship education programs from the perspective of students and graduates, who participated in entrepreneurship programs conducted in Romania, through the survey method. The results of the study show that there is a poor perception of the development of entrepreneurial behaviour through entrepreneurship education courses. On the other hand, the knowledge acquired in these courses is considered useful for managing a future business. The immediate results of participating in entrepreneurship education programs recognized by the participants are the accumulation of theoretical knowledge and obtaining a certificate of entrepreneurial skills. The increase of the involvement in the entrepreneurial education programs is seen by the respondents that it could be achieved by inviting some local entrepreneurs to present step by step their developed business.
