Attitudes of university students towards entrepreneurship
This paper reports on a study that was carried to find out the attitudes of university students towards starting their own businesses. Students were asked to show agreement or disagreement to statements that tapped into attitudes towards independence, prestige and wealth, knowledge and skills, income stability, foreign businesses, government support, and risk taking. Factor analysis was used to analyse the data which resulted into five factors towards entrepreneurship. These are intrinsic inclination, support seeking, fame seeking, self doubt and income stability. The differences in attitudes might have a bearing on entrepreneurship education and promotion of entrepreneurship in the country.
