Abstract: The study compared undergraduate chemistry students’ performance in paint production using a developed entrepreneurial skill training module. It specifically compared the entire undergraduate chemistry students of Federal and State Universities in the North Central region of Nigeria on one hand and the male and female students on another hand. The objective was to assess the students’ ability to use the module successfully to produce paint and to assess their entrepreneurial skills. Nonrandomized post-test only quasi experimental design was employed to carry out the study. Two hundred and thirty-six (236) students were randomly selected for the study. Two instruments – chemistry lecturers’ rating scale (CLRS) and chemistry lecturers’ questionnaire (CLQ) were developed and used. Data were analyzed using t – test statistical tool. The results showed a significant difference (p = 0.016) between the mean scores of State and Federal University undergraduate chemistry students who were trained using the entrepreneurial skill training module for paint production in favor of the State Universities. There was also a significant difference (p = 0.000) between the mean scores of the male and female undergraduate chemistry students in both federal and state universities trained using the draft entrepreneurial skill training module on paint production. The study recommended the use of the developed entrepreneurial skill training module for the teaching of undergraduate chemistry students in Universities to enable them acquire entrepreneurial skills.
