The importance of creating an entrepreneurial university is vital to achieving sustainable national economic growth. Despite numerous studies conducted to elaborate an entrepreneurial university conceptualization, framework and measurement, the results are mostly fragmented and remain at an embryonic stage. The research reported here proposes a systematic framework for an entrepreneurial university as the preliminary stage for further development in research and practice.
