Abstract: Globalization creates a competitive market. In order to become the winner in this competitive market, a country needs to have high quality human resources that constructed from the education the human resources had. The quality of the education itself is affected by the quality of the educators. Further, a country's competitiveness may also be supported by number of entrepreneurs it has. And one of the sources of entrepreneur creation is entrepreneurship education. In response to the above argument, in this study, the authors want to identify the relationship between teaching skills owned by entrepreneurship educators and entrepreneurship characters development among non-business students in University of Ciputra. The teaching skills are determined into 8 different variables; i.e. questioning skill, reinforcement skill, variation development skill, explaining skill, opening and closing skill, discussion guiding skill, managing class skill and teaching in a small group skill. For the entrepreneur's character, 7 characteristics of entrepreneurs developed by the university are used; namely passion, independence, market sensitivity, creativity and innovation, calculated risk taking, persistence and ethical. This study is focusing on non-business students due to the existing arguments on the importance to analyze entrepreneurship education among non-business students. University of Ciputra is chosen due to its goal in creating the world class entrepreneur.
