This research aims to investigate how combinations of factors lead to the entrepreneurial intention and propensity of engineering university students. The study proposes the application of a configuration approach (Qualitative Comparative Analysis) with a sample of 10,008 engineering students from 43 universities in 10 European countries. The findings show that entrepreneurial intention and propensity do not depend only on a single driver but on the interplay of multiple factors. The intensity of entrepreneurship education is a necessary but not sufficient condition. Different recipes brought to light in the analysis belong to similar socioeconomic contexts.

Abstract

This research aims to investigate how combinations of factors lead to the entrepreneurial intention and propensity of engineering university students. The study proposes the application of a configuration approach (Qualitative Comparative Analysis) with a sample of 10,008 engineering students from 43 universities in 10 European countries. The findings show that entrepreneurial intention and propensity do not depend only on a single driver but on the interplay of multiple factors. The intensity of entrepreneurship education is a necessary but not sufficient condition. Different recipes brought to light in the analysis belong to similar socioeconomic contexts.
