The present study examines the impact of entrepreneurship development skills imparted at HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) and human capital on creation of women entrepreneurship as well as empowering them. The women entrepreneurs having higher education qualifications were surveyed from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) located in north-west India, i.e., Gujarat. The statistical tools, like confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and structural equation modelling (SEM) were applied for data analysis. Result reveals that human capital which is an outcome education imparted at Universities fully moderates between entrepreneurship development skills thereby arising women entrepreneurship and empowerment in emerging economies like India. Thus, women's human capital strengthens the relationship of women entrepreneurship and empowerment. The study is confined to examining only women empowerment as a consequence of women entrepreneurship by entrepreneurship development skills taught at HEIs.
