Extending the Shapero’s Model: Entrepreneurial Education Can Predict Entrepreneurial Intention of Vocational School Students?

Authors : Dedi Purwana and Usep Suhud

Abstract: Since 2013, an entrepreneurial education has been implemented at high schools nationally in Indonesia. Particularly at vocational schools, students obtain this subject for 6 semesters. Scholars have gleaned this area with various combination of predictor variables. However, there is a paucity of study mixing the Shapero Model with entrepreneurial education. This exploratory study aims to test the impact of entrepreneurial education along with Shapero Model on student’s entrepreneurial intention. The Shapero’s Model of entrepreneurial event consists of variables: perceived desirability, propensity to act and perceived feasibility. Data was collected in 3 vocational schools in Jakarta. In total, 208 students were participated. Data was analysed using exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses. As a result, at the first attempt, all predictor variables failed to predict entrepreneurial intention. However, at the second attempt when perceived desirability, propensity to act and perceived feasibility were treated as moderators, entrepreneurial education significantly influenced two of the three predictors but still Shapero’s Model was insignificant to influence intention. The findings of this study suggest an agenda regarding a modification of entrepreneurial curriculum.
