This study was carried out to assess the attitude of tertiary students towards entrepreneurship education in Ghana.The study further assessed whether there is a significant difference in respondents’ attitude towards entrepreneurship education from gender and marital status perspective. Purposive sampling was used to solicit data and information from 788 students from a tertiary institution in Ghana. Descriptive statistics and inferential statistics were used to analyse the data with the help of SPSS software. Results of the study revealed that respondents exhibit positive attitude towards entrepreneurship education. The gender variable does not display statistically significant difference with regards to the respondents’ attitude towards entrepreneurship education. However, the result of the t-test revealed statistically significant difference between married and singly respondents with respect to their attitude towards entrepreneurship education. In conclusion, students generally exhibit positive attitude toward entrepreneurship education and the unmarried students are more likely to go into entrepreneurship compared to married students. Thus, the entrepreneurship should be developed in a way that it can support unmarried students even after school.
