Increasing entrepreneurial intention: effective entrepreneurship course characteristics
by Susan Mueller
International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business (IJESB), Vol. 13, No. 1, 2011


Abstract: Ajzen's model of planned behaviour was used to measure the impact of specific entrepreneurship course characteristics on entrepreneurial intention.

The hypotheses were tested with a quantitative study which was designed as an ex ante/ex post measurement. Course elements such as business planning activities, role models, student-oriented teaching and feedback processes are efficient components to increase entrepreneurial intention through its antecedents.
