This paper presents an analysis of the entrepreneurial intentions of university undergraduate students, with particular regard to those studying design. Attitudinal, social and capabilities variables are analysed in order to determine the profile of an entrepreneur. Using a sample of 521 undergraduate students, the findings show that design students demonstrate a high entrepreneurial intention (62%). In addition, it was found that attitudinal factors outweighed the students' self-perceived inability to develop their own businesses.
