Entrepreneurial intentions of students of higher vocational schools on the territory of Autonomus province of Vojvodina
Novi Sad School of Business, Novi Sad
Entrepreneurship is the most important development potential of a modern economy. Students and their entrepreneurial intentions encourage the creation of an entrepreneurial society, employment growth and innovation. In order to stimulate innovation, it is necessary to improve the quality of cooperation between the economy and scientific research institutions in which young people's entrepreneurship and their innovation play an important role. In this paper, 442 students of higher vocational schools from the territory of AP Vojvodina were empirically examined. The results have pointed to the existence of the desire and intention of students to start and run their business, and that most students want to start up their own business in the future. The results have also shown that students believe that the planned time between completing studies and setting up their own work is from 3 to 5 years.
