The purpose of this study was to determine the entrepreneurial intention level of vocational and technical students in Malaysia. A total of 289 final year students who were enrolled at two different TVET institutions (community colleges and National Youth and Skills Institutes) were chosen to participate in the study. The findings indicated that students have a strong interest in entrepreneurship (mean = 4.23, S.D. = 0.73) and a high level of entrepreneurial attitudes (mean = 4.03, S.D. = 0.47). It was also revealed that their social norms (mean = 3.82, S.D. = 0.59), entrepreneurial efficacy (mean = 3.99, S.D. = 0.59), and efficiency of entrepreneurship knowledge (mean = 3.93, S.D. = 0.55) were at moderate levels. There was no significant difference in the entrepreneurship intentions between students from community colleges and students from National Youth and Skill Training Institutes (t[subscript 260] = 0.23, p = 0.82).
