A Research Study on Determining the Entrepreneurial Levels of University Students and Suggesting the Factors Affecting Entrepreneurship: Pamukkale University Example

Abstract: Entrepreneurship is an innovative concept which promotes sustainable economic growth by gathering the factors of production namely labour, technology, capital, and natural resources. An entrepreneur is the person who utilises the opportunities in the market to produce goods or services and takes the risk by gathering the factors of production like capital, natural resources, and labour. The institutions where these people often exist are universities. In this study, we tried to determine the entrepreneurship levels of university students and faculty. Additionally we tried to determine how the level of entrepreneurship differs in terms of variables like department, socio-economic environment, work experience, and family structure. In this context, a survey was administered among 511 students and academics at Pamukkale University. During the survey, the scale developed by Yılmaz and Sünbül was used. As a result of the study, it was established that the participants have high levels of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurship levels of academics and the ones who have postgraduate degrees, work experience, who live in a developed socio-economic environment, who have done internship, who are the first children of their family, and who have a relative with his/her own business are high.
