Abstract


The purpose of this article is to analyze, based on new experimental data, the ef-fectiveness of entrepreneurship education using outsourcing and outstaffing (O&O) mechanisms based on the implementation of a massive open online course (MOOC). The field study was conducted among 205 undergraduate stu-dents enrolled in entrepreneurial programs in Management and Economics at three Russian universities. As a result of the study, the following hypotheses were confirmed. Namely, H1 "Implementation of O&O does not reduce student satisfaction with the educational process", H2 "Implementation of O&O does not reduce the level of students' understanding of theoretical teaching materials". H3 "Implementation of O&O does not reduce the level of students' understanding of practical learning tasks", H4 "The introduction of O&O has a positive impact on the business environment of the university". H5 "The introduction of O&O has a positive impact on the entrepreneurial intentions of students", H6 "The introduc-tion of O&O does not reduce the level of students' achievements". At the same time, all O&O elements were included in the educational process through online access to MOOCs based on EdX. The practical significance of the results ob-tained in the article is that the proposed approach allows one to effectively imple-ment outsourcing and outstaffing for the organization of entrepreneurial education based on MOOC, the creation and connection of which does not require signifi-cant costs from the university.
