Entrepreneurial Attitudes of Students in Higher Education

Abstract

Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education is one of the most important topics in higher education all over the world.
Students are interested in successful start-ups, innovation driven enterprises and are inspired by well-working entrepreneurial ecosystems. They also would prefer to work for their own, to build a successful business as an entrepreneur. In order to explore the attitudes and motivations of university students about entrepreneurship, a four country wide research was conducted. Students of different higher educational institutions were surveyed in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia about their knowledge, experiences, attitudes and plans about starting new enterprises. The main goal of the research - besides to give an analysis about the present situation - was to give a feedback for us, educators, about the knowledge and attitudes of students, which results should be built into our curricula. Based on the findings of the research, we implemented new teaching methods into our management subjects.
