    If we want to analyse the elements of the economic growth in Hungary, we have to check the dynamic, innovative, knowledge based enterprises, which have bigger development potential than the industry average. These enterprises are not only the impulsive force of the Hungarian national economy. In the study we want to show these enterprises are the hope for the future and we could find these in the maze of the Hungarian Higher Education. In the focus of the study are standing the potential knowledge entrepreneurs of the future, and we want to present they are university students, who are fondling entrepreneurial career. As the member of the European Higher Education Area Hungarian higher educational institutions face the fact that the modern theoretical knowledge based practical training programmes, the various instruments of talent maintenance and the LLL are the component of competitiveness. So the university students need the intellectual capital which was accumulated in the higher education institutions, to be knowledge entrepreneurs (Honig, 2004; Béchard & Grégoire, 2005; Edelman, Manolova & Brush, 2008; Kailer, 2009). In the study we want to analyse the entrepreneurial attitude of the university students (N=5700) in 25 Hungarian Higher Educational Institutions with the help of the (Hungarian) databases of Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students‘ Survey (GUESSS) project. We want to give a picture what kinds of role play the institutions in the field of increasing the managerial skills of students and promoting the entrepreneurial ambitions.
