Employment creation has become a central objective of policy in many countries. There is also growing unanimity that it can be better attained via a partnership of the private and public sectors. In order to provide the necessary background, the paper highlights extant evidence on the role of entrepreneurship in employment creation and some of the factors which may constrain it. The paper also evaluates the performance of private banks and management consultants in providing credit and management assistance in the job creation program for unemployed graduates in Nigeria. The evaluation is on the basis of the participants' ratings on some selected performance criteria. On the average, with only one exception, banks obtained better ratings than consultants on six performance criteria that are common to them but failed to meet the participants' expectations on four credit-related criteria.
