Determinants of Students’ Entrepreneurial Intentions: Evidence from Moroccan University

Mustapha Bachiri

Abstract


In recent decades, entrepreneurship has become a major economic and social phenomenon, a subject of research and a new field of education. While entrepreneurship is not a new concept, it regained importance particularly in scientific research. Entrepreneurship is seen as a vector for innovation and economic efficiency but also as a powerful job creator. Along with the evolution of entrepreneurship, there is a growing interest in the development of training programs to encourage entrepreneurship in universities. The challenge remains to find a consensus on the content to be taught and the type of learning to guide student behavior. Several empirical studies indicate that education can foster entrepreneurship. Yet the impact of entrepreneurship education programs on entrepreneurial skills and entrepreneurial values remains largely unexplored.

In this study, we used the theory of planned behavior to assess the impact of entrepreneurship education programs on entrepreneurial intentions in Moroccan universities, particularly the University of Rabat (Mohammed V University).
