The objective of this study is to examine the effect of entrepreneurial teaching on teaching practices in entrepreneurship education. The authors of this paper contribute to deepening knowledge about this relation. They also increase the knowledge about the supportive role of university–business collaboration to teachers’ adoption and diffusion of entrepreneurial teaching through a control variable of the ease of university–business collaboration. The empirical data for this study come from Finland, collected through an Internet survey. The results show that the teacher’s perception of the ease of engaging in university–business collaboration has an indirect effect on the teaching practices used. On the other hand, the teacher’s ability to implement entrepreneurial teaching has a positive direct relation to the ease of performing university–business collaboration, affecting also the use of versatile teaching methods.
