Abstract—With the trend of increasing globalization, entrepreneurship has been receiving more attention from government and educational institutions. Changes in the uncertain world economy have resulted in fewer job opportunities for college graduates, and in response, the government has sought to develop creativity among students through entrepreneurial activities and programs. The question now is, Are the increasing trends of changes and demands for entrepreneurship education due to the impact of globalization? To answer this question, this study examined the impact of globalization on trends in the demand for business and entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial skills in Malaysia. Questionnaire data were obtained from 306 participants. The participants were randomly selected from the population of administrators in higher education institutions in Malaysia. Data were analyzed using the descriptive statistics method. The findings show that there is an increasing demand for entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial skills, indicating that globalization has influenced the demand for entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial skills among university graduates.
