This article compares the educational background and years of work experience of students entering a Microenterprise Training Institute (MTI) program. Hypotheses were developed and tested to determine whether human capital attributes (education and work experience) influenced students' ability to graduate from an MTI program, to submit homework on time, and/or contributed to a better score on an evaluation of their business plan. Results indicated that education level was a significant, positive influence on the ability to graduate and on business plan scores, but had no influence on on‐time homework completion. Work experience had no effect on ability to graduate, homework submission, or business plan score.
