Abstract:

Entrepreneurship is intentional and planned human behavior. An individual with a positive entrepreneurial intention is more likely to become an entrepreneur since intention is the single best predictor and most direct antecedent of an individual’s actual behavior. As a sample, 100 post-graduate students of MBA and M.Com programmes of a state-aided university in West Bengal have been considered in this study. The study primarily aims to identify and compare entrepreneurial intentions among the students of MBA and M.Com programmes based on the factors of EEM. Moreover, the study focuses on measuring the difference in responses among the students of both programmes based on gender and father’s occupation. RWS has been undertaken to identify and compare the relevant items under PD and PF of EEM that influence the entrepreneurial intention of students, and to measure the difference in responses among the students based on their gender and fathers’ occupation, the Mann-Whitney U test has been adopted. The result exhibits that MBA students are more desirable and feasible towards entrepreneurship compared to M.Com students. Furthermore, based on gender and father’s occupation, female students and students whose fathers are engaged in other professions than business were found to have lower intentions towards entrepreneurship.
