Entrepreneurial intent at university





Abstract: Entrepreneurship may be an occupational alternative for university students, especially in a scenario with high unemployment rates. In the present study, we aimed to verify the differential functioning (DIF) of an entrepreneurial intention scale (EIQBr-b) in students of humanities (n = 50), social sciences (n = 50), health (n = 47) and exact sciences (n = 50). We used Rasch-Rating-Scale-Score Model and analyzed DIF by the Mantel-Haenszel method for polytomous items. We found that students of social sciences presented less difficulty in the items that emphasized the planned proposition of their own company. The items related to self-determination and career did not present DIF between the different areas. For that reason, it is necessary to plan, develop and improve the actions of education and professional orientation for entrepreneurship, considering particularities among the areas of knowledge that differentiate the manifestation of entrepreneurial intention among the groups
