Abstract: Objective – The purpose of this paper is to describe entrepreneurial intentions (EI) among university students in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Methodology/Technique – Adapting the theory of planned behavior, this study measures entrepreneurial self-efficacy, risk tolerance, and desirability of self-employment as antecedents of entrepreneurial intention. Using cross-sectional data from 190 students in Bandung, the analysis uses multiple regression analysis to investigate the relationship among the variables. Findings – The findings show that entrepreneurial self-efficacy and desirability of self-employment have a significant impact on entrepreneurial intentions. Desirability of working for others and risk-averse personalities were found to be suppressor variables, while risk-taker personalities were found to be insignificant. Novelty – The study contributes to the field of entrepreneurial intention research as it investigates the antecedents of entrepreneurial intentions among university students in Bandung based on samples taken from 8 different universities.
