Abstract: Based on the cognitive theory and theory of planned behaviour, this paper analyses the influence of entrepreneurship education on entrepreneurial intention and the effect of entrepreneurial risk perception and entrepreneurial self-efficacy on the undergraduates' experiences. The results show that entrepreneurial education can effectively promote the formation of entrepreneurial intention. The three dimensions of entrepreneurship education (i.e., entrepreneurial cognition, entrepreneurial ability, and innovative spirit) have a positive impact on entrepreneurial intentions. Entrepreneurial risk perception and entrepreneurial self-efficacy have an intermediary effect on entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial intention. The research results reveal the effective boundary of entrepreneurship education, explore and prove the specific mechanism of entrepreneurship education on entrepreneurial intention, and help to find effective ways for entrepreneurship education to promote entrepreneurship.

Keywords: entrepreneurship education; entrepreneurial risk perception; entrepreneurial self-efficacy; entrepreneurial intention.
