Sažetak
Universities have been recognized as primary source of highly qualified labor, and recently also as the source of potential entrepreneurs. There is elusive evidence that education in general positively influence attitudes, capabilities, intentions and commitment of the person toward entrepreneurship, especially in the context of ex socialist countries. In addition, the evidence is also inconclusive since both positive and counter effect can be found in the literature. The aim of this paper is to investigate entrepreneurial self efficacy of the students in Croatia and how is it influenced by the level of education or by the particular entrepreneurship program. The study explores the perception of the entrepreneurial self efficacy among business administration students at one Croatian higher education institution. The paper finds support for majority of theoretically assumed relations between entrepreneurial self-efficacy beliefs and its predictors. The entrepreneurial self efficacy is higher for those who have higher personal attitudes or aspirations to entrepreneurship and more positive reinforcement from close friends. There is an interaction effect between level of education and self-efficacy. For students with no previous and personal exposure to business formal educational program seems to have positive impact. The self efficacy of major students without experience is higher than for undergraduates without experience. On the contrary, self efficacy beliefs of undergraduates with personal experiences related to business are higher than self efficacy of students with experiences on the graduate programs. The main contribution of the paper is in confirming relationship between education and self efficacy beliefs among students in a ex socialist country. While there is interaction between educational program and ESE there is still much to learn about the entrepreneurship programs designs or their effectiveness. Demystification of the potential of the formal educational programs with respect to the enterprising behavior of graduates can be important to the education program educators as well as policy makers.
