Abstract

The aim of the study was to analyse and compare the relationship between entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial intentions amongst Agricultural Economics and Animal Production students at the University of Limpopo. The study used primary cross-sectional data which was obtained by means of a structured questionnaire from 25 final year students randomly selected from each class which made the sample size of the study 50. Drawing from the Theory of Planned Behaviour, descriptive statistics was used to process the data obtained from the entrepreneurial intention measurement instrument adopted from (Linan and Chen, 2009). Descriptive statistics revealed that the entrepreneurial intentions of Agricultural students at the University of Limpopo are high; the mean for the entrepreneurial intention scale of the BSc Agric (Agricultural Economics) students was 6.02 and BSc Agric (Animal Production) students was 6.42. The results reveal that agricultural students at the University of Limpopo have high entrepreneurial intentions regardless of the study program they are enrolled in. It is recommended that agricultural students need support in terms of business mentorship, funding and incubation to facilitate the materialization of the business ideas they intend to start.
