dc.titleEnterpreneurship Intention Among French Grande Ecole and University Students: An Application of Shapero's Modelen
dc.typeArticle accepté pour publication ou publié
dc.description.abstractenArguably, entrepreneurship is still a recent phenomenon in French society, and its higher education establishments are still experimenting with ways to teach entrepreneurship and enterprise creation. This paper presents a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the entrepreneurial intention of French higher education students at three different establishments (a management Grande Ecole, an engineering Grande Ecole and a university) using the Shapero intention model. The study found that most of the students wanted to work in large organizations and were not intending to create a new company or work in a family business. There were significant differences, however, between management and engineering students in terms of their entrepreneurial environment, which may affect their attitudes to new business creation. The authors conclude that, while enforced learning through entrepreneurial courses and seminars may initially be off-putting, such initiatives may have longer-term beneficial impacts on entrepreneurial intention.en
