Abstract: In today's world, entrepreneurship is seen as a major economic wealth in many places and it is also a best medicine for unemployment problem in developing countries. The objective of this study is to study the inter relationship between demographic factors and entrepreneurial intention and to examine the role of curriculum in entrepreneurial intention of students. The data we used for analysing entrepreneurial intention were collected from various journals by different author's reviews from the period 2006-2015. Most of the models are mainly analysed with the base of theory of planned behaviour (TPB) model that includes subjective norms, attitude towards this behaviour and perceived behavioural control. Results of this study show that many authors state the demographic factors will have less influence on entrepreneurial intention. Apart from that, attitude and their personality traits will influence highly on entrepreneurial intention to become an entrepreneur.

Keywords: entrepreneurial intention; entrepreneurship; unemployment; attitude.
