Abstract.One of the four key goals of the Strategic Framework for European cooperation in education and training "Education & Training 2020 'is to increase creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship skills at all levels of education and training. Entrepreneurship education is seen as an effort of educators to affect positively the motivation and students’ attitude to entrepreneurship and therefore help develop skills important for being successful in business in the fields they are professionally trained for. The issue of entrepreneurship education should therefore be adequately reflected in the curriculum of training programmes, teaching methods and competency models. The paper describes the best approaches to implement the issue of entrepreneurship education at different stages of economic education in the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic, based on the empirical research and the teaching experience of authors. Research was conducted in  the years 2008-2015, the authors were researchers of scientific grants, which were mentioned in the paper. Objectives, research questions and hypotheses were verified in direct relation to the merit of the article – developing of entrepreneurial potential of students – and this was reflected in the research methodology. The research was a combination of both quantitative and qualitative methods, particularly pedagogical experiment and exploratory methods. With regards to the range of the original research, selected parts of unpublished results of the research are presented in the paper.
