Self-efficacy and its effect on entrepreneurial attitude among university students: An exploratory study

Sabnam Begum and Dr. Sampreety Gogoi
Entrepreneurship has generally been seen as a means of fostering economic growth, creativity, and invention, it is a crucial component for any country aiming to compete in the knowledge-based global market. At the same time, youths are the backbone of a country in all the facets. The youths who have the zeal to shape their ideas and skills into something productive are often seen to be the one venturing towards entrepreneurship. Youth and entrepreneurship are two important elements for an overall development and prosperity of a country. University students are the youth who will look for suitable job opportunities soon after completion of their graduation and more often it is seen that they have the tendency to focus on the job sector rather than channelizing their talents and ideas towards entrepreneurship. The lack of suitable employment opportunities forces young people to look for alternative livelihoods and only then they start considering the prospects for establishing their own enterprise. The present study was conducted in Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat to analyse whether there exist any effect of self-efficacy on entrepreneurial attitude among the University students. A total of 158 number of respondents were selected from the four colleges of Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat campus. The findings of the study revealed that majority of the respondents were found to have an average level of self-efficacy. It was also found that a large number of the respondents reported a high level of attitude towards entrepreneurship. Further, there is no significant relationship between the two variables i.e., self-efficacy and attitude towards entrepreneurship.
