Theory Of Planned Behavior has three main dimension mainly perceived attractiveness, subjective norms and perceived behavior control that is used as independent variables. Entrepreneurial intention is used as dependent variable. The objective of this study is to attempt whether similar relationship exists among the public universities student within Kota Kinabalu. The comparison between students who have attended and those who have not attended will be studied to assess the effectiveness of the programme. A total of 252 respondents participate in this study with 98 students attended and 154 students not attended the programme. The responses from the survey were statistically analyzed with SPSS version 12.0. The results indicated that only perceived attractiveness has positive relationship with entrepreneurial intention. The study of moderating variables such as gender, major subject and ethnic did not influence the relationship between independent variables and dependent variable. This unique finding had added another inconsistent result as shown by previous researches. This research hopes to assess the effectiveness
