Entrepreneurship education is thought to be offered primarily at universities. Socially, a movement should be initialized within the transition economies. Thus, the entrepreneurship education should be offered at earlier stages and taken up on a broader scope. The coordination of the different organizations working on the entrepreneurship education in Turkey was realized especially after 1990. Hence, the communication between universities, public and private sectors flourished. In this study, within the context of the positive and negative lessons taken from the activities conducted within the framework of the entrepreneurship education in Turkey, the arguments as well as thoughts related to the structure of the entrepreneurship education which is deemed to be essential in an attempt to achieve the citizen-centered, liberal economic development in Albania which has a transition economy are emphasized.
