Abstract:

Entrepreneurship involves the creation of jobs and wealth in the economy, normally through a small business management. The entrepreneurs may face some problems in performing these functions because certain psychological factors affect their entrepreneurship activities. The study investigated the impact of psychological factors on entrepreneurial intention among Agricultural students of SKUAST-K in Kashmir. Purposive sampling method was used to select colleges followed by simple random sampling to select students, constituting a sample size of 120. Data collection was done through a well-structured pre-tested interview schedule. Descriptive statistics namely, percentage, mean, frequency and standard deviation were employed to analyse the data using the SPSS software version 16. The findings revealed that majority of students had medium level leadership ability, aspired to be government officials, medium level attitude towards entrepreneurship, low technical confidence and fear of financial risk. The study concluded that to motivate the students towards entrepreneurship there is urgent need for university to make necessary changes in its course curriculum including more of the entrepreneurial programmes. Positive attitude towards entrepreneurship, leadership ability, financial management, technical confidence, risk taking, decision making ability are some important psychological characteristics that need to be inculcated among the budding entrepreneurs.
