Abstract

Entrepreneurial intentions have been a subject frequently studied by the scientific community. Entrepreneurial intentions have been a subject frequently studied by the scientific community. The existing literature expresses varied arguments, in which the central theme is how entrepreneurial intention is determined. The study presented three specific purposes. The first was to explain the incidence of attitudes toward behavior in entrepreneurial intentions in undergraduate students; the second was to explain the incidence of subjective norms on entrepreneurial intentions in undergraduate students and the third was to explain the incidence of perceived control in entrepreneurial intentions in undergraduate students. The data collection was carried out in 8 universities located in the three provinces with the largest population, economic importance and numbers of university students in Ecuador. Through the analysis using structural equation models, it was demonstrated that self-efficacy as a second-order reflective factor and proactivity as a one-dimensional reflective factor, have a significant influence on the entrepreneurial intention of university students in Ecuador.
