Abstract:


The main purpose of the study is to carry out a research on whether “entrepreneurial intentions” and “motivation and learning strategies” of university students could be predicted according to their year of study levels. The first sub-purpose of the research is to determine whether there is a relationship between entrepreneurial intentions and their motivation and learning strategies. The second sub-purpose is to analyze whether there is a difference between entrepreneurial intentions and their motivation and learning strategies according to their year of study levels. The method of this study is quantitative, and it has been designed in the survey approach. The 'Entrepreneurship Scale for University Students' developed by Yılmaz and Sümbül (2009) was used as the data collection tool. Another scale used in the study was the "Motivation and Learning Strategies Scale", which was adapted to Turkish by Büyüköztürk, Akgün, Özkahveci et al. (2004). For the analysis of the data, multinomial logistic regression analysis, Pearson correlation analysis and one way variance analysis (ANOVA) were performed. According to the research findings, it was revealed that entrepreneurial intentions of university students and their motivation and learning strategies were predicted by their year of study levels at a low level. A weak positive correlation was obtained between entrepreneurial intentions and their motivation and learning strategies. It was concluded that motivation and learning strategies would differ according to the year of study level.
