Entrepreneurial intention and its subsequent achievement in starting one's activity are processes subject to numerous internal and external influences, which should be studied in depth due to their great importance for local and global economies. The present research is holistic since it encompasses the entire process that generates entrepreneurial behaviour. On the one hand, the objective is to identify the influence training, personality traits, and other factors such as social norms and motivation have on entrepreneurial intention. The study further analyses the process between intention and final entrepreneurial behaviour and how the difficulties encountered moderate these relationships. To this end, a survey form was produced and assign to a sample of 456 undergraduate business graduates from different universities, and a structural equation model was estimated with relationships based on existing literature. The results revealed a strong influence of the factors analysed on entrepreneurial intention and a significant modulation of the difficulties encountered when the intention is transformed into entrepreneurial behaviour.


Keywords –entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial intention, training, personality traits, social norms, motivation, difficulties.
