This paper investigates the indirect effects of entrepreneurship education delivery modes (case studies, simulations and experiential activities) on the relationship between personality dimensions (Extraversion, Neuroticism, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness and openness to experience). At a 5% significance level, statistically significant and positive correlations were found between entrepreneurship thinking and three personality dimensions (Extraversion, Conscientiousness and openness to experience). On the other hand a statistically significant negative correlation between Neuroticism and Entrepreneurship Thinking was observed. Using IBM SPSS Amos, the paper presents a model to show the total, direct and indirect effects of entrepreneurship education delivery modes on the relationship between personality dimensions and entrepreneurial thinking. The model is recommended for further testing using Moderated Mediation procedures.
