The aim of this paper is to find ways of improving the entrepreneurial curriculum through an analysis of the master students’ satisfaction level related to entrepreneurship and digital skills. In this context, the following objectives were formulated: carrying out a content research on digital environment; conducting satisfaction surveys for target group; performing critical analysis of surveys' results; identifying the strengths and weakness of Cahul State University in entrepreneurial education. The different types of questions were applied: demographic, rating scale and multiple-choice questions. The Likert-type scales were used for rating scale questions.  The surveys’ results reveal that the major part of students’ skills is still underdeveloped. In this context, the authors recommend adjusting the curriculum design by including the formation of attitudes related to job in forming skills and competences and by diversifying teaching strategies (more interactive and collaborative) and learning methods. Students have to be frequently trained how to work efficiently in groups, how to behave in crisis situation, to think and solve problems creatively. Furthermore, digital skills have to be developed deeply by using in teaching and learning process during all courses by creating and using different digital resources and formats.
