This study examines the impact of entrepreneurship education on individuals’ entrepreneurial self-efficacy and intention. We propose that entrepreneurial behavior is a planned behavior; that is, the students’ decision to create a business in the future leads them to enroll in an entrepreneurship education program. We see the educational program as the means to help students reach their goals. Education should affect self-efficacy to perform business related activities and intentions to start a business (entrepreneurship students versus non-entrepreneurship students). Moreover, entrepreneurship students are expected to learn more from the program than non-entrepreneurship students because their behavior is planned. We expect to find that education increases self-efficacy to perform business tasks and also increases intentions to start a business (individuals with experience versus individuals without experience).
