Title

Entrepreneurial intention of Saudi students: role of Saudi Arabian universities in achieving The Goal of Vision 2030


Abstract

The present study is focused on Saudi students' entrepreneurial intention and Saudi Arabian universities' role in achieving Vision 2030. The paper examines Saudi universities' role in the predictive value of students' self-efficacy, subjective norms, and attitudes towards entrepreneurship for entrepreneurial intentions. The data were collected from the student enrolled in the varied programs in Saudi universities. A total of 208 Saudi students enrolled in various disciplines, and those who attended entrepreneurial educational programs offered by the universities participated in the research. The collected data were analysed using descriptive statistics, correlation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis. Results of the study revealed that Saudi universities strengthened the students' self-reliance and positive attitude toward entrepreneurship and reduced the impact of social norms on entrepreneurial intentions.
