ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study is to advance research on student‟s Entrepreneurship Intentions (EI) in Nigeria by using the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). The paper extends the TPB model by examining the moderating role of students‟ Consideration of Future Consequences (CFC) on student‟s EI. The survey data was collected (n=232) among the polytechnic students in Nekede, Owerri, Imo State and analyzed using SmartPLS 3.0. The findings show a significant relationship exit between Attitude towards behaviour (ATB), Perceived Behavioural Control (PBC) and Subjective Norms (SN) on students‟ Entrepreneurial Intention (El). In addition, CFC was found to be a significant moderator of the relationship between PBC and EI. The relationship between PBC on El is stronger and more positive for students with high level of CFC but not for students with low level CFC. The study implication to research and practice are provided.
Keywords: Entrepreneurial Intentions, Consideration of Future Consequences, Theory of Planned Behaviour, Perceived Behavioural Control, Entrepreneurship
