The purpose of this paper is to describe the entrepreneurial intention (EI) among Danish university students applying the theory of planned behaviour.
Using cross-sectional data from the Danish Global University Student Spirit Survey 2013 (n=1,027) the analysis is based on a joint correspondence analysis (JCA) investigating the relationships between the variables.
Results indicate that students prefer a career as employee showing a low EI. Both very high and very low EI are related to very high/low self-efficacy and perception of entrepreneurial climate and learning.
The study points to an improvement of entrepreneurship education through customised offers dependent on the student’s level of EI and entrepreneurial self-efficacy.
Moreover, this study has proven that the JCA is a useful method to analyse the relationship between EI and other related variables in an exploratory study.
