Comparing entrepreneurial intentions among students: the role of education and ethnic originAIMS International Journal of Management (2010)
AbstractOur knowledge about the relationship between entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial intentions is limited. This paper explores and evaluates entrepreneurial intentions and their antecedents among students at a US university by building on Fishbein and Ajzen’s (1975) model. In doing so, it contributes to our understanding of how education affects students’ attitudes and self-efficacy toward entrepreneurship. It also examines the role of family background, experience and ethnic origin, in affecting attitudes, norms and intentions. Findings highlight the impact of education and ethnic origin on entrepreneurial intentions, and suggest that cultural and socio-economic factors remain important to a study of entrepreneurial intent.
