In our study, we look at the relationship between the individuals’ propensity for rather entrepreneurial than traditional career choices. We examine people with a consistent educational background and human capital, and in particular accounting students, as there are a substantial number of self-employed accountants and accountants are employed in a variety of more or less entrepreneurial organizations. We further build on and integrate prior research from the domains of entrepreneurial intentions and vocational behaviour in the accounting profession.
