The paper offers an understanding of the process of entrepreneurial learning that is
critical to the development of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship. The paper reveals
the relationship between entrepreneurial learning process and the success of the
business among small-scale entrepreneurs for selected learning types. The materials
for analysis were obtained from a field work conducted in Surakarta, Indonesia by
using a survey method. Four hundred and eighty-five 485 respondents were identified
based on stratified random sampling for urban, suburban and rural areas. The total
population identified was 1,040 small entrepreneurs. The reliability of the research
instrument was 0.9, which is considered high. It was found that the types of learning,
i.e., formal, non-formal and informal, had different effects on the learning process
of small-scale entrepreneurs. Such findings are important to the development of the
entrepreneurial learning and policy to improve the effectiveness of entrepreneurship
