Factors Affecting Entrepreneurial Intentions among the Undergraduate Students in Rangpur, Bangladesh

 

Abstract: This study aims at measuring the impact of personality characteristics such as risk-propensity, need for achievement, locus of control, autonomy, self-efficacy, tolerance of ambiguity, and education on the entrepreneurial intention of undergraduate students in Bangladesh. Primary data were collected from 250 undergraduate students of three educational institutions selected purposively from Rangpur using a questionnaire. Regression analysis was performed to identify the factors that have a significant impact on entrepreneurial intention. The findings of the study show that need for achievement, locus of control, autonomy, and self-efficacy significantly impact the entrepreneurial intention of undergraduate students. But this study finds no significant effect of risk taking propensity, tolerance of ambiguity and education on undergraduate students’ entrepreneurial intention in Rangpur, Bangladesh. However, this research is geographically limited to only three educational institutions in Rangpur in Bangladesh and the sample size of this study is relatively small. Lack of budget is the main reason to limit this research to small sample size. But, this study has implications for economic policymaking, and universities providing education to undergraduate-level students.The findings of the research suggest that students having a high need for achievement, high preference for autonomy, and high perceived self-efficacy are more willing to be entrepreneurs. Hence, any initiatives to increase in need for achievement, autonomy, and self-efficacy among students will help stimulate entrepreneurship development by increasing entrepreneurial intention among the students in the country. This paper is an original one and contributes to the research literature empirically.
