ABSTRACT

The entrepreneurial intention issue is considered nowadays as an important source of corporate sector growth and competitive advantage of enterprises. The strengthening of intentions towards entrepreneurship should be developed by educational system, achieving the strongest intensity at higher education level. Identification of factors influencing the entrepreneurial intention among students could lead to improvements in education system to be more entrepreneurial oriented.
The main aim of the paper is to identify and analyse the determinants and barriers of entrepreneurial intentions of students in Poland and Czechia. The empirical part of the paper is based on the results of a questionnaire survey which was conducted in 2016 in selected universities among total 204 Polish and Czech students. For evaluation, the descriptive statistics and the Pearson chi-square statistic were used by means of which the assumption about independence of respondents’ answers was verified.
The results indicated areas of improvement, both in strengthening the opportunities as in limiting barriers of entrepreneurial intentions development. The novelty of the paper was visible by exploring and compering the factors of entrepreneurial intentions in two populations of students from different countries.

Keywords: entrepreneurial intention, entrepreneurial orientation, education system
