Md Din, Syahirah Amira (2013) Entrepreneurial intention among students case studies of UiTM Kota Bharu / Syahirah Amira Md Din. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


The problem of unemployment is so crucial in this era of globalization. The solution to this problem is entrepreneurship, which can provide plenty of new job opportunities as well as accelerate economic growth. Despite of the Malaysian government aggressively promotes entrepreneurship as a career choice among students, however, many students still reluctant to be an entrepreneur after their graduation. The students’ behavior and decision to involve in entrepreneurship can be explained by their intention. Therefore, this study identifies factors that influence students’ intention to become an entrepreneur based on the model of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). This study employed 150 students from UITM Kota Bharu campus which consists of second and third year student. It is based on the questionnaires consisting of 27 items measuring attitude towards entrepreneurship, subjective norm, and perceived behavioral control. The findings of the study show that all three factors significantly influence students’ intention to become entrepreneurs. Out of these three factors, perceived behavioral control emerged as the strongest factor that had a strong influence on intention. Implications and limitations of the findings are specified. Finally, the findings of this study are suggested for future study.
