Abstract

The authors argue that the university setting can directly influence the likelihood that students identify and exploit opportunities as well as their entrepreneurial intentions. It examines the influence of the organizational context on individual behavior with the goal of understanding how effective initiatives to encourage academic entrepreneurship are. The impact of entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurship support programs and industry connections on students' entrepreneurial intentions are expanded. Findings suggest that academic entrepreneurs are more likely to come from universities having intensive industry ties than from other institutions.
