This study was conducted to assess the Implementation of entrepreneurship education curriculum content towards unemployment reduction among universities graduates in Anambra State. A questionnaire was used to collect data from 23 business educators who teach entrepreneurship education courses. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions, while t-test was used to test the hypotheses at a level of 0.05 significance. It was therefore, recommended, among others, that Federal and State Ministries of Education should build equipped infrastructural facilities like resource centres and networks for exchange of good practice and also entrepreneurship education should be a general course in every tertiary institution in Nigeria.
Key words: Entrepreneurship, implementation, education, curriculum, unemployment.
