Abstract: This study was to determine the perceptions and attitude of graduating students towards entrepreneurship education, and how these affect their employment ambitions. Using a descriptive cross sectional design, a random sample of 340 final year undergraduates from Bayero University was studied. Data was analyzed using SPSS 16 statistical software. The students’ mean age was 23.5 ±2.2 years. Majority was single (87.1%), male (63.8%), and Hausa/Fulani (84.7%). Majority (85.0%) had good perception about entrepreneurship, although 58.8% opined that the course is inadequate, and should be course specific (72.1%). Up to 84.1% had negative attitude towards entrepreneurship. Only 52.9% aspired to be self reliant after graduation. Having good perception about entrepreneurship (p = 0.0001), negative attitude towards entrepreneurship (p = 0.002) and Hausa/ Fulani ethnicity (p = 0.04) were significant predictors of self employment ambition. Entrepreneurship Education for Nigerian Universities should be repackaged based on specific entrepreneurial areas and with built-in logistic support.
