This is a descriptive and exploratory study attempts to identify the development of entrepreneurship education in the Arab universities during the period (2003 – 2013) compared to the importance of these programs in the western universities. The study depends upon the census procedures and the secondary data provided by the electronic sites of the Arab universities. The study plans of the faculties of business administration were the main source of data. The results suggest that there is no significant difference between the results of the first study (2003) and that of the second one (2013). The percentage of the universities providing entrepreneurship education was (61%) in the first study and (63%) in the second study. The percentage of the universities which do not provide these programs was (39%) in the first study and (37%) in the second study. A significant difference occurred between the governmental and the private universities with regards to the offering of compulsory and elective courses in entrepreneurship. Nevertheless, there was a qualitative development in the level of entrepreneurship education in the second study. Departments of entrepreneurship have been appeared as well as majors, concentrations and masters’ degrees in entrepreneurship in the Arab Universities. A discussion of the results and their implications were presented along with suggestions for further research.
