Determinants of Entrepreneurial Intent of Students in Oltenia Region
AbstractAlthough entrepreneurship is a highly studied subject in economic literature in recent years, there are still many aspects that hasn’t been sufficiently detailed or which have not been fully clarified. One of them is entrepreneurship among young people with higher education. In the scholarly literature (especially foreign) there are several studies related to this issue, but approaches are far from being convergent, uniform. In the present material, we intend to analyze the intensity of entrepreneurial intention among students from Oltenia and identify its (most important) determining factors. To this end, the first part of the article presents a summary of relevant literature in the field, continuing with a research based on data collected through a survey on a sample chosen from among students of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration in Craiova (from Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree cycles). The results obtained will be compared with those of studies conducted in other countries to see whether there are differences and to identify possible causes of these differences.
