Abstract: Entrepreneurship is vital to all societies of the world to sustain economic and social development. Generally speaking, promoting entrepreneurship among university students before they begin their career is inevitable. It is very intriguing to study the future entrepreneurial intentions of university students preparing themselves for their respective professional career. Young people attending higher education institutions are theoretically better equipped; at first glance, we think they should be more entrepreneurial than their counterparts who have lower degrees of education. In many studies, though, the opposite has been found. In our study, rather than these contentions, we aim to examine the factors that influence entrepreneurship in the career of Turkish-Hungarian higher education students who are studying in Hungary. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 20 students (10 Turkish and 10 Hungarian) studying at the different faculties and programs of three Hungarian universities. After the interviews, the data were subjected to content analysis, and subsequently analysed in detail.
