Cross sectional survey research design was used. The population consisted of all the final year students of College of Education Billiri. The study sets out to lay emphasis on how entrepreneurship education can increase employment, productivity and create wealth via implementation of entrepreneurship education in all institutions and at all levels of learning in Nigeria. Three research questions were developed for the study and data was collected from 100 students using a structured questionnaire subjected to content validation by experts named Questionnaire on the impact of entrepreneurship education assessment (QOIEEA) and analyzed using mean and standard deviation. The findings showed a substantial impact of entrepreneurship education on students. The result implies that entrepreneurship education has positive impact on students as it prepares them to be self-reliant rather than job chasers. The study recommended collaborative efforts between NCCE with the Department of General Studies to identify other entrepreneurship programmes to address the issue of unemployment among graduates.
