Over the years, numerous graduates that acquire entrepreneurial knowledge and skills have been found not to put it to use once they graduate from tertiary institutions despite the prominent role which entrepreneurship education plays in providing these graduates the opportunities to gain the knowledge, skills, attitude, career aspiration and culture needed for business start-up or new ventures due to certain hindrances. The study thus undertakes an empirical analysis to examine the relationships that exists between entrepreneurship education and Nigerian tertiary institutions graduates’ business start-up. Descriptive survey research design was employed; and graduates were sampled using Yaro Yamane sampling Formula. A structured questionnaire which included the general entrepreneurship education and business start-up test was applied in gathering information. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistic and logistic regression was used in testing four hypotheses. The major finding of this study was that graduates entrepreneurial knowledge does not have a significant relationship with graduates’ personality traits.
