One way of solving these problems is through the effective teaching of entrepreneurship education, especially at technical-based higher institutions. The research adopted the narrative review approach that seeks to give an understanding of current knowledge on the rationale of metalwork craft, the concept of entrepreneurship education, school-based enterprise and their usefulness for graduates’ employment and productivity in Nigerian. The review showed that entrepreneurship education in the Nigerian higher education institutions seems to be more about creating entrepreneurship awareness, as against the practical approach, which is a means for developing entrepreneurship skills. Some challenges were highlighted that impede the successful implementation of entrepreneurship studies in Nigeria and recommendations made towards the practical realization of entrepreneurship education in our higher institutions.</em></p> Arikpo Sampson Venatius, Aede Hatib Musta'amal, Ogumbe Boniface Ekwok, Otu Aniema Edet Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Entrepreneurial Research Wed, 02 Dec 2020 11:02:44 -0500 The Impact of Social Media Marketing on Urban Youth’s Brand Loyalty: Through Facebook Marketing <p style="text-align: justify;">Social media being established as an effective medium of communication, marketers now highly focus on social media marketing create brand awareness and institute brand loyalty.
