The study findings indicated that skill acquisition significantly impacts entrepreneurship development. Entrepreneurship education provides essential abilities, skills, motivation and awareness to learners. Entrepreneurship education is crucial to restoring stagnated economics, promoting growth and lowering joblessness by offering new job opportunities. Entrepreneurship skill acquisition programs in learning institutions provide the knowledge required to exploit entrepreneurial opportunities, which usually assists economic growth.
