Abstract

One of the crucial factors supporting Indonesia’s economic growth is the increasing  number of entrepreneurs, that can be considered as the indicator of new businesses establishment in the country. In parallel to this, there are more entrepreneurship departments openning in Indonesian universities – either public, private or vocational ones. Therefore, we find it important to identify the entrepreneurial intention of the first and second year students.This study aims to determine the entrepreneurship intention and also to investigate the influence of attitude and context upon the entrepreneurial intention of university students in Indonesia.
