Abstract


Entrepreneurship is initially about seeking opportunities and then seeking the needed resources. An organization which is poor in entrepreneurial activities is often poor in supplying the organization with opportunities. Those organizations seeking progress must understand what helps opportunities manifest.
This research aims to appoint the level of individual entrepreneurship of students studying Cultural Management at the Science & Research Branch of the I.A.U to help understand the significance of the main factors of individual entrepreneurship which are risk-taking, requiring success, having an internal control center, creativity tendency, needing independence, tolerating uncertainty, prognostication and being a good conversationalist. The research is functional, goal wise, and a questionnaire has been used as a data collecting tool.
The results from the research questions showed that the level of individual entrepreneurship of students studying Cultural Management at the Science & Research Branch of the Islamic Azad University was estimated to be good, but still far from the desired level. Some of the most important findings of this research are as it follows: there is a reverse relation between the factors of risk-taking, needing independence & tolerating uncertainty and gender; there is a reverse relation between the factors of risk-taking & requiring success and age which means that the older the students become, the more reduction of the factors; there is a direct relation between factors of having an internal control center, tolerating uncertainty & being a good conversationalist and age; and no meaningful relation is seen between creativity tendency and age.
