Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to investigate entrepreneurial intentions among university students in China and Mexico. Findings reveal that students’ perceptions of an entrepreneurship major, self-employment, and self-confidence levels influence their entrepreneurial intentions. In addition, we found that external structural support had a significant moderating effect on the self-confidence and entrepreneurial intent relationship. The aforementioned moderating relationship was mitigated by access to and availability of external support.
