While Effective Learning is a desirable outcome of good teaching, its significance is much more critical in the case of entrepreneurship development. It must start with identifying the entrepreneurship types of students. Literature shows that there are 9 types of entrepreneurship and six constructs. The Faculty’s ability to match them with the students would logically help in achieving Effective Learning. This research explores the students’ entrepreneurship types and determines the learning style that would accommodate them. A questionnaire adopted from a leading entrepreneurship researcher is distributed randomly to 270 students from the Faculty. Results show that students in the Faculty fall into four types, namely, Communicator-Trainer, Advisor-Counselor, Builder-Creator and Entertainer-Host. The six constructs are entrepreneurial competencies, achievement orientation, human service, leadership, expertise, and managerial and personal effectiveness. While it is not possible to cater for all of the Entrepreneur Types, a competency-based learning style developed from say the top three or four students’ competencies identified will establish alignments that should make the resulting learning effective. The potential of this method is shown by way of the low percentage of current graduates from traditional teaching and learning method choosing to be entrepreneurs when queried on their graduation day. As the implementation of this CBL style only took place recently, a longitudinal investigation is required to ensure that the same cohort is being tracked.
