Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan has urged for the subject of entrepreneurship to be taught in secondary schools so that our country can produce more entrepreneurs.

As reported by BERNAMA, Ahmad Maslan said that according to statistics, only 40% of the 500,000 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) school leavers entered Form Six, took Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) or pursued their studies at higher education institutions.

Furthermore, of that number, about 300,000 ended up working in the factory or e-hailing with their SPM qualifications.

The Deputy Finance Minister said that this was among the issues discussed in the National Employment Council recently.

“If exposure to business (entrepreneurship) knowledge starts earlier, we will be able to produce high-income entrepreneurs.”

“An entrepreneur must have extensive business knowledge and effective marketing methods in order to be successful. We hope that the Ministry of Education will consider the proposal,” he added.

Ahmad Maslan further urged that entrepreneurship be taught as a subject rather than a curriculum.



Previously, we shared how nearly 50% of SPM school leavers from the 2021 batch chose not to continue their studies, a significant increase from the previous year.


So, what do you guys think of the proposal by Ahmad Maslan? Do you agree with his statement? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
