This article compares entrepreneurial education to other instructional teaching methods and it explains to a great extent why entrepreneurial education can initiate much greater levels of enthusiasm, commitment, thoughtful and reflective learning than can other instructional methodologies. The study conducted a survey through a questionnaire, and the respondents were 175 school teachers in the UAE. The study examined the importance of teaching entrepreneurial skills in school students.
