Abstract
College students are the generation who are entrusted by the people to provide job openings after they graduated. There are many college students who have run businesses in their period of study. So it is necessary to know what their Psychological Capital state they are in because it can be used as a guideline for us to prepare after graduation. But, some of the students are not continuing their businesses due to lack of perseverance in running the business. The aim of this research is to understand why college students have big motivation to start their own business but not continuing their business after graduate. The subjects of this research are 112 students who currently run an entrepreneurship at college. The data is retrieved through questionnaire based on the concept of psychological capital [1]. The research shows that students have a psychological capital to run their ambition to run business. But there are differences between students who continuing their business and students who stop their business. They who are currently running their entrepreneurship have a fairly high percentage of psychological capital compared to those who used to run a entrepreneurship. This result gives a meaning that students who are currently running a entrepreneurship potentially have a more sufficient positive psychology in terms of confidence in their ability, predict many good things with reasons to support it, have a positive motivation and able to work out ways to solve it when encountering problems, and still hold on through a negative or positive event in reaching a particular goal.
