Abstract Universities of the 21st century must ensure that entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial knowledge and skills pervade its management learning and teaching programs. This multi-method study reports on 53 current MBA students┬┐ perceptions of learning, teaching and skills acquisition in their MBA program. Chi-square analysis revealed significant relationships between independent demographics variables such as age, gender and country of domicile i.e. Southeast Asia and Australia and dependent variables of teaching and learning. In relation to preparedness for post-educational activities, statistical testing suggests that male students were more likely to engage in intrapreneurial activities, whilst younger MBA students and MBA students who are not working were more likely to start a new business. Overwhelmingly, the results showed that the majority (83%) believed the MBA program should develop both entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills. The study suggests refinements be made to MBA curricula based on the research findings.
