Universities are increasingly expected to strengthen their role in society (Jarvis, 2013). This also suggests a transition towards the “entrepreneurial university” (Etzkowitz, 2014; Foss & Gibson, 2015) and a reorientation of university strategies and policies to promoting entrepreneurship and societal impact (Siegel & Wright, 2015). One tenet in this development is increasing the supply of entrepreneurship education and training modules campus-wide, and making entrepreneurship topics mandatory or at least highly recommended to all university students irrespective of their discipline. This strong wind of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurialism into the universities is not without critics (also see Chapter 1 of this volume). The resisting voices are asking if the move towards the entrepreneurial university will erase any attempts to safeguard the traditional values and threaten the academic ethos of the Humboldtian university (Philpott, Dooley, O’Reilly & Lupton, 2011).
