Research Background

During the last few years, entrepreneurship has played an important role which boosts economic
development by innovative ideas and brings them all to life for the global innovation. In the
current education environment, most of business education systems are developing with
entrepreneurial trend which entrepreneurship courses are usually offered in business school, that
students can learn essential skills, abilities, motivation, etc. to turn their ideas into actions for a
start-up business in the future. Moreover, these courses have another objective that to change the
mindset of the young people, give them more creativity and self-confidence through the
entrepreneurial activities, utilize their potential sources, and make them more attractive in the
work-market.
As the same position of other countries in the world, the Vietnams demand of entrepreneurial
education has been increasing continuously for long time. International University National
Universities HCMC has offered Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management course,
also, few years ago. However, in the past decades, many research papers proved that the
educational support is not the only one factor which creates the impact on entrepreneurial
intention of people.

Rationale

Few years ago, a paper showed that active mode (learning by business plan seminar) creates
positive impacts in intentions and attitudes (Sascha G. Walter and Dirk Dohse, 2009). Moreover,
the parental role model and work experience reflects peoples motivations and capacities to
recognize an opportunity and to utilize it (Ajzen, 1991). In addition, many researchers try to find
out the relationship between personal characteristics, trait and entrepreneurial intention (Bolton
and Thompson, 2004; John A. Parnell, 1995). Some other factors were identified in research of
entrepreneurship such as locus of control, perceived barriers (Lthje & Franke, 2003; Leong
Chee Keong, 2008) or attitude toward entrepreneurship (Carayannis, Evans, & Hanson, 2003);
(Lthje & Franke, 2003); (Krueger et al., 2000); (Autio et al., 2001); (Francis et al.,2004).
With the title of Factors Affecting Entrepreneurial Intentions among International University
Students, this paper aims to study the impacting factors of entrepreneurial intention. The main
purpose for the research is discovering main factors which create an impact on IU students
intention on entrepreneurship. The result of this study will help policy makers and school masters
recognize clearly the restraints and disadvantages in Vietnam, then conduct the correct plan of
educating and training, design the suitable course for International University. Last but not least,
it will support State of Vietnam in opportunity providing for young entrepreneurship.
