The global diffusion of entrepreneurship education necessitates a better understanding of what is being taught, why, how, and to whom it is taught. Despite enormous empirical evidence on the role of entrepreneurship teaching pedagogies in maturing students’ entrepreneurial skills and behaviours, it is important to examine how particular teaching pedagogies may help in developing and exploiting university students’ entrepreneurial potentials in Saudi Arabia, where the government is investing tremendous resources to promote entrepreneurial activities, yet entrepreneurship education is the weakest entrepreneurial ecosystem factor. Based on a PLS-based SEM model involving 825 female students from Saudi universities, a positive association between different entrepreneurship teaching pedagogies has been found in maturing entrepreneurial attitudes, entrepreneurial self-efficacy, as well as enhancing perceived behavioural control. The study found a significantly positive role of these three determinants of entrepreneurial intentions among female students in Saudi universities.
