This paper presents a profound reflection upon the educational organization and contributes with an innovative conceptualization of a philosophical nature. It establishes the nature and aim of the educational organization and of the entrepreneurial organization and lays the foundation that will allow understanding of both the shared and the differing aspects existing among them and to infer that the educational organization is not a business organization. Even though an educational organization is an institution that shares the characteristics of any organization, its specific purpose or aim differs from what is understood by entrepreneurial organization.
