Summary, etc Purpose – Disadvantaged students face social exclusion and undergo a different treatment than<br/>mainstream students. This alters their entrepreneurial intention subsequently. This study aims to investigate<br/>the factors affecting disadvantaged students’ intention in their willingness to undergo entrepreneurship<br/>education as a vocational course. The variables include self-efficacy, need for achievement (nAch) and family<br/>background. The paper further examines whether entrepreneurship education intention enhances their<br/>entrepreneurial intention.<br/>Design/methodology/approach – This study uses a deductive quantitative study as the chosen<br/>approach as it ensures complete anonymity and hence researcher bias is minimized. The sample consists of<br/>the third year, final year and postgraduate first year disadvantaged students from different streams of<br/>engineering, economics, arts and commerce. The study was conducted with a total of 319 students completing<br/>the questionnaire which used a five-point Likert scale.<br/>Findings – Using the theory of planned behavior (TPB), the results show that willingness of disadvantaged<br/>students to study entrepreneurship as a vocational course is highly driven by their family background<br/>followed by self-efficacy and nAch. The results further strengthen the TPB and has implications for educators<br/>of entrepreneurship and a possibility of a widening of entrepreneurship education in disadvantaged<br/>community.<br/>Research limitations/implications – The study measured attitudes and willingness with intentions,<br/>but not actual behavior as this was a cross-sectional study. Also, repeated observations could not be made<br/>and dynamics of change could not be captured.<br/>Originality/value – This is one of the few studies focused on entrepreneurial intention of students who are<br/>socially excluded and therefore it offers a possibility of widening of entrepreneurship education in countries<br/>such as India which display a collectivist culture and provides an intention-based linkage to entrepreneurship<br/>education among disadvantaged students. This study also puts subjective norm as a strong predictor of<br/>intentions which previous studies have refuted. The findings also suggest that there is a strong intent to study<br/>entrepreneurship among disadvantaged students in India, which makes entrepreneurship education a<br/>seemingly acceptable choice of education and suggests promise for its wider reach and penetration.
