Abstract:

India has been one of the fastest growing economies of the world since the 1980s. But still unemployment among graduates is very serious concern. Many fresh graduates do possess the knowledge and skill that are important for starting-up own business. However, only a tiny percentage of students choose to be self-employed after graduation. The study was conducted at College of Agriculture, G.B.P.U.A. & T. Pantnagar to study the relationship between with socio-economic, personal, and psychological variables with entrepreneurial intention of undergraduate students. Analytical research design was used for the present study. Detailed pre-tested questionnaire was administered to 110 respondents for collection of data. Results revealed that self-confidence, achievement motivation, innovativeness were significantly positively correlated with entrepreneurial intention. On the other hand family size, total family income, occupation of head of the family and risk taking ability had non-significant positive relationship with entrepreneurial intention but academic performance had non-significant negative correlation with entrepreneurial intention.
