Abstract

Entrepreneurship is an important key to progress and development in Peru. The Peruvian government is making an effort to promote entrepreneurship. It is desirable that this research explains variables to improve entrepreneurship in Peru and, therefore, obtain the results of having an increased number of young entrepreneurs in the country. This research identifies variables that influence entrepreneurial intention among university students in Peru. The following variables are included: Role model, self-employment experience, and work experience. Data are reported on the population, the gross domestic product, per capita income and the level of entrepreneurship in Peru. Previous studies in Spain and Taiwan show that "attitude toward behavior"and "perceived behavioral control"influence "entrepreneurial intention."This research adds a third comparison: Students in Peru are compared with students in Spain and Taiwan. The role model is found to influence attitude toward behavior and toward perceived behavioral control. Previous studies show that the university environment is a starting point for young entrepreneurs. Private universities promote student participation in activities throughout the five years of studies. The variety of activities includes invitations to parents to show student progress through projects and research done by students.
