Students’ Perceptions of Their Business Competences and Entrepreneurial Intention
AbstractThe study examined perceptions of higher education students’ business competences and entrepreneurial intention. The sample consisted of the second- and third-year business students. The data were compared by academic years, by gender and internationality. In general, the findings indicated that the students were quite confident in rating their business competences, while the perceptions of their entrepreneurial intention remained at the lower level. Based on the findings, there were only small differences between the second and third academic years, yet the international students rated themselves with higher scores than the Finnish students. Further, the findings showed that there were no statistical differences between male and female students related to their perception of the business competences and entrepreneurial intention. All in all, the international students had higher scores than the Finnish students both in all the competences and in their entrepreneurial intention.
