It is one of the government programs to increase the number of entrepreneurs to support Indonesia’s vision to become a developed country in 2045. Research on gender issues and women entrepreneurship have attracted attention, thus increased tremendously. Yet, there are still few scholars whose research is about the relationship between gender and entrepreneurship academic performance, especially in Indonesia. This study aims to compare entrepreneurship subject final score, using gender and academic year as the independent variables. The data used in this study is secondary data taken from the academic system. There are 3336 data used in this research. There are four levels of the academic year and there are 834 data in each academic year, consist of 374 males and 460 females. The comparative test is analyzed using a two-way ANOVA. The result of this study shows that there is a significant difference between the male and female final scores on entrepreneurship subjects from the second semester until the fifth semester. Females tend to have higher scores compared to males. The result of this study also shows that there is a significant difference in the final score between each academic year.
