This paper studies the long-term impact of entrepreneurship education and training in high school on entrepreneurial entry, performance, and survival. Using propensity score matching, three Swedish cohorts from JA Company Programme (JACP) alumni were compared with a marched sample of similar individuals and follow these for up to 16 years after graduation. It was found that while JACP participation increases the long-term probability of starting a firm as well as entrepreneurial incomes, there is no effect on firm survival.
