The results show that the students have agreed with the intentions that they are ready to do anything to be an entrepreneur, their professional goal is to become an entrepreneur, they will make every effort to start and run their own firm, they are determined to establish a firm in the future and they have the firm intention to start a firm someday. The results reveal that there is a significant association between age and entrepreneurial intentions in tune with monthly family income and entrepreneurial intentions of the students. The results show that personal attitude, desirability, feasibility and personal motivation are positively and significantly influencing the entrepreneurial intentions of the students at one per cent level.  Of those who have intention to start a business, majority of them take some steps to realize their dream of business ownership.  The findings demonstrate the potential value of attitudinal measures for predicting who will want to start a business. The results suggest that further development of this approach may be fruitful for understanding the intentions to become self-employed.

Key Words: Desirability, Entrepreneurial Intention, Feasibility, Personal Attitude, Personal Motivation
