This paper aims to examine entrepreneurial intentions to anticipate future entrepreneurial behavior of undergraduate students enrolled in two different fields of study at the same university. Following the theory of planned behavior, empirical relationships between entrepreneurial intention and its determinants are established. The data were collected using an especially tailored survey questionnaire, while students of business economics and electrical engineering were attending their courses. Three antecedents were tested in relation to entrepreneurial intentions. Correlation analysis confirmed that attitudes toward entrepreneurship, perceived behavioral control, and subjective norms form positive and statistically significant associations with entrepreneurial intentions. However, certain differences between these two groups of students' stances related to the items that describe the determinants of entrepreneurial intentions are confirmed. This requires additional attention and remains for future research.
