Abstract

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