Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore, from an empirical point of view, the state of entrepreneurship education in Sudan. It examines the existence and scope of entrepreneurship education in the Sudanese higher education public institutions. Data were collected from a sample comprising five public universities by examining their curricula and surveying the opinion of a selected sample from these universities. Respondents were asked 25 questions in order to assess their perceptions about the existence and depth of entrepreneurship education in the Sudanese public universities. It was revealed that there was only one programme of entrepreneurship education in Sudanese public universities. Moreover, entrepreneurship courses were very rare and were not commonly offered by those universities. However, many colleges teach entrepreneurship within different courses. Further, it was found that the public universities suffered from a shortage of qualified staff in entrepreneurship education as well as a lack of a conducive environment for its development. Based on this it is recommended that entrepreneurship education be incorporated into the curricula of higher education institutions in Sudan. The process of its introduction should be gradual, starting with staff qualification and the improvement of the teaching environment.
