This study, based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), assesses the impact of entrepreneurship education programs (EEPs) on entrepreneurial intentions of 205 studentsfollowing entrepreneurship courses at six Iranian universities. Data were collected by aquestionnaire before and after completing EEPs. Result indicated that EEPs significantlyinfluence perceived behavioral control and subjective norms. However, no support was foundfor the effects of EEPs on attitudes toward entrepreneurship, opportunity identification, andintention. Findings suggest that the TPB could be considered to provide a useful framework toanalyze how EEP might influence students’ entrepreneurial attitudes and intentions.
