One of the most renowned ideas of our day is innovation. Academic disciplines are examining the possibility of inspiring and empowering individuals of society and organizations to produce innovation. In higher education institutions, it is assumed that student innovation is grounded in entrepreneurial pedagogy. The paper examined the impact of case study-based learning approaches on student innovative capability. Entrepreneurial pedagogical methods, however, have not been thoroughly investigated in terms of their contribution to student innovative capability. Results were presented using inferential analytical technique. Multiple regression was employed to test hypotheses of the study. Results revealed thatcase study significantly influenced student’s innovative capabilities. The study’s findings are beneficial to higher education institutions because it will shed new light on the connection between entrepreneurial teaching and student innovative capacity. In order for students to develop more market-relevant innovations, the report suggests that industry professionals and academics collaborate on the many entrepreneurial skills that are needed. Higher education institutions should devote more in entrepreneurial education that focuses on the issues and complexities that students confront in order to motivate them to participate in research projects.
