Abstract

This paper dealt with the different strategies for promoting entrepreneurial skills
to the students in the fields of Science and Mathematics. It also identified the skills needed in
pursuing Science and Mathematics courses. This descriptive research included 90 students taking
Science and Mathematics subjects in the College of Liberal Arts. The study found the
respondents' strong agreement on the different strategies used in the promotion of entrepreneurial
skills, which include encouraging them to be resilient, risk-taker, persistent, and hardworking.
Teachers are encouraged to teach Mathematics and Science students using the following
strategies: using the questioning method, writing assignments, leading students to think critically,
scientific knowledge-based learning, decision-making through correct reasoning, and
participating actively in science and mathematics activities. It also revealed that the different
skills needed in entrepreneurial activities are the ability to solve problems, to learn and act
independently, to plan a solution, to analyze and plan further action, to set goals and act
creatively, to assess and classify information, to take the initiative and responsibility, and to
cooperate and work in a team. The correlation between the strategies employed in promoting the
entrepreneurial skills of students, and the skills development is high positive correlation and is
found to be significant. It is important to note that the strategy used in promoting entrepreneurial
skills of the students is significant also in the skills development of the students.
