Which Background of University Students Have Higher Entrepreneurial Intentions After Receiving an Entrepreneurship Education?

Abstract

Many studies in the past have shown that students in higher education who receive entrepreneurship education will increase their entrepreneurial intentions. Some studies even suggest that students in business schools are more likely to start a business after receiving entrepreneurship education than students in other schools. However, which students from which backgrounds have higher entrepreneurial intentions after receiving entrepreneurial education? Based on the above, the purpose of this study was to examine the key backgrounds that influence university students' entrepreneurial intentions. In this study, 702 university students were randomly selected from the 60 technology and science universities in Taiwan, and using regression analysis, the research found that: 1. The most important factors affecting students' entrepreneurial intentions are entrepreneurial attitudes and innovative behaviors; 2. Undergraduates who participated in off-campus internships had a positive impact on their entrepreneurial intentions; 3. Entrepreneurship education does not have a significant impact on entrepreneurial intentions, only freshmen and sophomore students received entrepreneurial education more effectively than junior and senior year students.
