In many countries, entrepreneurship is seen as an activity to create wealth and is also the best solution to the problem of unemployment in developing countries. However, entrepreneurial careers are not preferred by the younger generation, especially academics. The theoretical frame of this paper is on the base of the theory of planned behavior (TPB) because most of the literature agreed that entrepreneurial intentions are determined by using the theory of planned behavior (TPB). Therefore this study aims to determine the entrepreneurial intentions among undergraduate students and determine the factors that affect their intention. The study design was used a cross-sectional study and we collect the data from the two public universities in the city of Faisalabad of Pakistan. Specifically, these are the University of Agriculture Faisalabad and the Govt. College University of Faisalabad and information was collected from 120 students through well-structured and comprehensive questionnaires by using random sampling. Frequencies, Cronbach’s alpha test, and binary logistic model have been used to analyze the impact of different factors included in the model as Gender, Age, Entrepreneurial Education, Attitude, and Ability, Perceived behavioral control, Subjected norms, and opportunity for entrepreneurial intentions. The result indicates that all the factors are positively influenced the entrepreneurial intentions among students. Although, opportunities and entrepreneur education are strongly contribute to entrepreneurial intentions among students. Based on the outcome of the research Pakistani universities should need to incorporate techniques to facilitate their students in educational programs so that their abilities, as well as their intentions, can be honed. Universities of Pakistan should consider other factors that promote entrepreneurship and awareness of entrepreneurial opportunity among the universities students such as seminars, conferences, and internship programs to enable students to become entrepreneurs. These results are implicit for policymakers.
