The focus of this article was on the impact of entrepreneurship education on South African economic development. The study took a theoretical approach and supplemented it with secondary data from textbooks, journals, and internet resources. The findings demonstrated that in South Africa, enriched and well-packaged entrepreneurship education can help with skill acquisition, capacity building, entrepreneurial development, and fast-tracking economic growth and development. As a result, it was suggested that entrepreneurship education in our various institutions focus on practical orientation rather than theoretical appreciation of the course. It was also suggested that the government establish good study centers with well-qualified personnel to educate and train prospective entrepreneurs, and make funds available to them at the end of the program for business formation, enrich and repackage entrepreneurship education, curriculum for use in South African universities and colleges.
