Keywords:Entrepreneurship education, self-efficacy, locus of control, interest in entrepreneurship
The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of entrepreneurship education, self-efficacy and locus of control on undergraduate students' entrepreneurial intentions. The study used a purposive sampling technique and data collection using a questionnaire. The data analysis technique used is multiple linear regression. Based on the results of the analysis it was found that entrepreneurship education, self-efficacy and locus of control had a positive and significant effect on students' entrepreneurial intentions. This study concludes that entrepreneurship education is able to convey the knowledge needed and provide skills that are able to change students' intentions to entrepreneurship into entrepreneurial activities. Although entrepreneurship education is not an absolute thing that leads to entrepreneurial intentions, but this entrepreneurship education has its own way to motivate students to start entrepreneurial businesses. In addition, to realize and increase interest in entrepreneurship, it is advisable to develop an entrepreneurship education program that does not only provide theory, but rather discusses case studies of entrepreneurs starting their businesses and developing strategies that are appropriate for these entrepreneurs to face future challenges that make students gain knowledge and form a stronger character to become an entrepreneur.
