Abstract

This study aims to establish accounting students’ interest in choosing entrepreneurship as a career option based on the theory of planned behavior. The sample of this research are 2012 and 2013 cohort Accounting students at Universitas Indonesia. The results show that attitudes toward entrepreneurship are positively associated with the interest of accounting students in becoming an entrepreneur. On the other hand, subjective norms have a negative effect on their interest in entrepreneurship. Lastly, accounting and business management does not affect the interest of accounting students in making entrepreneurship a career choice.
