Corporate entrepreneurship (CE) is of utmost importance for organizational development and yet, the literature is scarce in reflecting how CE is taught in entrepreneurship education. In this chapter, we focus on leading case studies on CE and analyze them according to a behavioral (discovery, evaluation legitimation and exploitation) and hierarchical (top, middle and operating roles) aspects. With this analysis we conclude that case studies are a preferred way for entrepreneurship educators to promote experiential learning in the classroom about CE. At the same time, we motivate educators to increasingly focus on the identification of the key actions being taken within CE as well as of where the responsibility of such actions typically falls within organizational roles. We contribute to further our knowledge about CE in entrepreneurship education and reflect the varying CE activities, actors, and behaviors.
