For African countries to compete effectively in the global economy, a ‘transformative agenda’ is needed. This agenda should necessarily promote the spirit of entrepreneurship as a strategic imperative at national levels. Fundamentally, this requires unblocking institutional impediments to entrepreneurship education and training. Against this backcloth, this chapter explores how the prevalent modes of entrepreneurship education within African educational systems have continued to be impacted upon by outmoded colonial values and the implications for developing modern entrepreneurial skills. It does this by comparing the relative traits that underpin differences in attitudes towards entrepreneurship among groups. The study draws from Bowlby et al.’s (2010) cross-national study, which was subsequently extended to Morocco (of which this study is a part). Thus, using samples drawn from Morocco, a link between educational system and entrepreneurial spirit is reconfirmed. But, more fundamentally, it finds that inappropriate pedagogical models have continued to negatively impact efforts to enhance entrepreneurship training and education. Many entrepreneurial programmes are rooted in colonial orthodoxies and, therefore, are unfit for purpose when put alongside developmental needs of a renascent Africa. To enhance national competitiveness, and to grow and sustain the spirit of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship curricula should build away from Africa’s colonial past.
