In the operationalization of the research, articles available in the Web of Science and Scopus databases were included. The database selection procedure was carried out by analyzing the documents using the software: My EndNote Web, Microsoft Excel and VOSviewer. <strong>Results:</strong> It was possible to identify the scarcity of compassionate research on the subject, in addition to the fact that little is known about the emergence of an entrepreneurial action and how, in fact, this research axis can contribute to studies on entrepreneurship. <strong>Theoretical contributions: </strong>It was identified that there are promising studies on the subject that made possible the exchange of the concept of entrepreneurial action and the different areas of knowledge through the construction of a synthesis matrix. <strong>Relevance/originality: </strong>The field of entrepreneurial action is still incipient and requires greater efforts towards a theoretical and empirical development, in order to establish and contribute to the construction of a very limited and defined conceptual structure about the phenomenon. <strong>Contributions to management: </strong>Studies on entrepreneurial action are directly related to case studies that report the emergence of entrepreneurial actions in organizations, which emphasizes the concentration of work in the areas of management and business.</p> Milena Abreu Ávila Daniela Meirelles Andrade Camila de Assis Silva Vinícius Batista Gonçalves Copyright (c) 2023 Milena Abreu Ávila, Daniela Meirelles Andrade, Camila de Assis Silva, Vinícius Batista Gonçalves 2023-10-19 2023-10-19 12 3 e2446 e2446 10.14211/regepe.esbj.e2446 Impacts of entrepreneurship education on brazilian undergraduate students: An empirical study comparing compulsory and elective disciplines <p><strong>Objective of the study: </strong>This study assesses the impact of entrepreneurial education on students of entrepreneurship courses at the undergraduate level of Brazilian universities. <strong>Methodology: </strong>The methodology adopted was pre/post based on the collection of primary survey data among 398 entrepreneurship students of 10 undergraduate courses from six Brazilian universities, involving twelve professors. Data analysis was performed using confirmatory factor analysis and paired t-tests to compare means. <strong>Main results: </strong>Entrepreneurship elective courses have a greater positive impact (especially for entrepreneurial attitudes, perceived behavioral control and entrepreneurial intention) for undergraduate students, when compared to mandatory courses, which negatively impacted entrepreneurial attitudes, perceived behavioral control and entrepreneurial intention. <strong>Theoretical / methodological contributions: </strong>The development of a framework to analyze the impact of entrepreneurial education based on the recent entrepreneurship literature representing an extended version of the Theory of Planned Behavior that includes entrepreneurial knowledge and competencies. <strong>Relevance / originality:</strong> The application of a rigorous methodology (pre/post intervention) with application of paired t-tests and the comparison between elective and mandatory entrepreneurship courses in large database.</p> Carlos Arruda Ana Burcharth Erika Penido Barcellos Samara Paganini Lourencini Copyright (c) 2023 Carlos Arruda, Ana Burcharth, Erika Penido Barcellos, Samara Paganini Lourencini 2023-10-18 2023-10-18 12 3 e2443 e2443 10.14211/regepe.esbj.e2443 Dribbling Covid-19: Challenges and dilemmas of an entrepreneur <p><strong>Objective</strong>: to investigate the motivations, profile and skills of the individual who chooses to undertake; promote reflection about the entrepreneur's position in the face of a major crisis; and seek an answer to the question: Is digital influencer to be an entrepreneur? <strong>Methodology/Approach</strong>: teaching case. <strong>Main results</strong>: in the “teaching notes”, discussions are suggested on entrepreneurship itself, the use of the business model and the internationalization of small companies. <strong>Theoretical and methodological contributions</strong>: the structure of the case contributes methodologically to the dynamics in the classroom, constituting one more tool for learning the subject in question. <strong>Relevance/originality</strong>: the case is relevant because it shows the story of an entrepreneur (Breno) who, after realizing his dream and creating a promising business (a travel agency), as a result of a major crisis (Covid-19, lockdown and its impact on the travel industry, as well as the depression and feeling of impotence generated by it), needs to reinvent himself professionally (becoming a successful online consultant for entrepreneurs). With the end of the pandemic and the resumption of business, the impasse arises: Remain as a digital influencer or reactivate the old company (since tourism has grown again)? <strong>Social contributions to management</strong>: the case shows the reality of the entrepreneur in Brazil and raises questions about the regulation of the digital influencer profession.</p> Bruno Grezole Giovana Bueno Copyright (c) 2023 Bruno Grezole, Giovana Bueno 2023-10-07 2023-10-07 12 3 e2442 e2442 10.14211/regepe.esbj.e2442
