    No presente artigo apresentamos a importância do processo empreendedor e uma resenha do empreendedorismo em Portugal e do seu posicionamento em termos internacionais. Analisamos os determinantes da intenção empreendedora de uma amostra de estudantes universitários do norte de Portugal a partir da teoria da acção planificada (Ajzen, 1991) e dos valores pessoais individualistas e colectivistas (Schwartz, 1996; Rokeach, 1973). Por outro lado, nesta vertente psicossocial realçamos a questão do género (diferenças existentes entre homens e mulheres) que evidencia que os homens mostram empiricamente maior intenção empreendedora que as mulheres e esta intenção está associada a autoeficacia empreendedora. Os resultados vão de encontro com as expectativas apontadas pela literatura.
