Abstract


As per the Ajzen’s theory of planned behaviour (1991), an individual’s behaviour is a product of intentions based on attitude toward behaviour, subjective norms, and perceived control. The researchers have focused on studying the entrepreneurial intention among PG students towards entrepreneurship or business ownership, the specific constraints that impede young people to start business, and incentives for starting a business as a viable alternative for the youth among others. Data collected from the pre-final and final year MBA students from Hyderabad, India using a validated questionnaire. A total of 100 students were participated in the study. The data has been analyzed by using simple excel spreadsheet and then presented with the help of frequency tables. The results of the study show that attitude toward entrepreneurship and perceived behavioral control is significantly predicting entrepreneurial intention among students. Potential entrepreneurs displayed stronger start-up intentions than people who did not plan to start a business. Findings of this study help educational institutions and government to understand the present stand of entrepreneurship intention among Indian students and frame adequate polices to support entrepreneurial activity in the country.
