This empirical paper is grounded on theory of planned behaviour to measure entrepreneurial Intentions of Afghan Business Students. The problem addressed in this study is to cultivate careers through entrepreneurship for the betterment of individuals at micro and macro level. Quantitative methodology is acknowledged in this study while data is collected through five point Likert scale questionnaire adopted from previous research studies and Structure Equation Modelling (SEM) approach is used for analysis purpose by applying SMART PLS3 Algorithm in order to measure entrepreneurial intentions of Afghan business students. This Study developed five hypotheses based on literature and concluded the findings with three hypotheses substantiated while two are not. At a climax of the findings, this paper found that one of the well-established hypotheses is not substantiated in the context of Afghanistan. Moreover, this paper recommends qualitative study to explore the possible reasons of lack of support for the hypothesis in the context of the study.
