Variables that may influence entrepreneurial intention among university students : a review of the literature
Keywords:entrepreneurial intention, Ajzen's theory, entrepreneurial desire, social factors, entrepreneurial capacity
The purpose of this article is to present a review of the literature on variables that may influence students' entrepreneurial intention, as well as the theories that underlying our research work. Several theories have been used to explain entrepreneurial intention, including the theory of entrepreneurial event of Sokol and Shapero and Ajzen's theory of planned behavior. But among students in particular, it is necessary to ask what factors spark the idea of starting a business. After reading several articles in the literature on entrepreneurial intention, we were able to identify three essential variables that affect entrepreneurial intention : the desire to undertake, the social factor, i.e., the environment and the entourage, and the entrepreneurial capacity, which is manifested in financial and informational resources. Thus, the results of our study, based on 26 articles that deal with the determinants of entrepreneurial intention, were generated using the Nvivo software.
