Promoting entrepreneurship and enhancing successful entrepreneurial activities play a determining role in economic performance of a country. Since students studying in tertiary education may become successful entrepreneurs in the future, it is important to map their current visions about starting a business and identify the ways of channelling their visions in a positive direction. Tertiary education institutions through their education structure and offered services can make students know and understand business activities related to business operations and help them overcome potential obstacles they face while conducting business activities. Hungary joined the GUESSS (Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students’ Survey) international research project organised and led by the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland in 2006. The GUESSS evaluated students’ entrepreneurial intentions and activities of students in a survey based on a questionnaire. Using the survey results of 2011, the article attempts to identify and evaluate business start-up factors.
