Abstract

This research aims to identify the determinant factors of entrepreneurship in the case of university students. Internal and External factors are the focus of this research. We evaluate the perceived opportunity as an internal factor and facilities provided by the university as an external factor. The perceived opportunity is one factor that influences people's intention to establish a business the most. University facilities are an external factor in the most valuable help that university could provide for students to encourage them. This research also more in-depth evaluates student perception of business incubation programs in both universities. This research evaluated primary data from Jenderal Soedirman University, Indonesia, and Debrecen University, Hungary. Data was collected using a questionnaire. The results show that the perceived opportunity has a significant impact on the intention to establish a business. However, the business incubation program from campus does not affect student intention to establish a business. A more interesting finding is that Indonesian students have the lowest belief about the impact of business incubation programs compared to Hungarian and international students. This research's further implication is that the business incubation program needed to be improved to impact student willingness to establish a business significantly.
