The entrepreneurial competency has been well regarded as the most influential factor in business performance. Despite their being regarded as a vital aspect of business performance, studies of entrepreneurial competencies are still at a preliminary stage. Descriptive research is used to analyze the level of entrepreneurial competencies of students after completing higher education. A comparative study of the Management and Entrepreneurship Programs was undertaken by means of a questionnaire-based survey of final year university students. Statistical analysis was subsequently performed to assess any significant differences in entrepreneurial competencies developed in students by the Management and Entrepreneurship Programs at SBM ITB. The results of the study indicated no significant differences between the entrepreneurial competencies of the two programs. The reported findings contribute to the improving of teaching and learning at SBM ITB.
