The research design adopted by the researcher was descriptive design of the survey type. The population for the study comprised all undergraduates in public Universities in Ekiti State. The sample consisted of 300 undergraduates selected from two universities in Ekiti State. The sample was selected by the researcher through multi-stage sampling procedure. A self-designed questionnaire tagged Undergraduates’ Choice of Entrepreneurial Skill Questionnaire (UCESQ) was used for data collection. The face and content validity of the instrument was determined by experts in Tests and Measurement. The reliability of the instrument was determined through test re-test method. A co-efficient of 0.809 was obtained and this was considered high enough to make the instrument reliable and useful for the study.
