Abstract

This study examined the mediating role of self-efficacy in the development of entrepreneurial intention amongst the art and science students in Universiti Malaysia Sabah. Intention proved to be the best predictor of planned behavior, particularly when that behavior is rare, hard to observe, or involves unpredictable time lags; entrepreneurship is a typical example of such planned, intentional behavior (Bird, 1988; Katz and Gartner, 1988). This study has received 233 returned questionnaire. Major analysis that performed in this study including factor analysis and regression as well as correlation analysis to test the hypothesis and as expected self-efficacy is a best predictor for intention. The findings of this research indicate that mastery experience and verbal persuasion are the best antecedents for entrepreneurial self efficacy. In this study also, the entrepreneurial self-efficacy proven to have significant effect on entrepreneurial intention.
