Entrepreneurial intention is found to determine student’s willingness in future to engage in entrepreneurial activities. Students’ entrepreneurial intention may be affected by different factors. This study aims to examine the behavior of entrepreneurial intentions among business students in Karachi. Ajzen’s theory of Planned Behavior theoretical framework was used in this study. Multiple Linear Regression technique is used to examine the hypothesis. Study revealed that attitude towards behavior and the perceived behavioral control is playing a positive significant impact on the formation of entrepreneurial intention and subjective norm is playing a negative impact on entrepreneurial activities. Based on the results of the study, the role of education is considered vital in promoting entrepreneurial intentions. The study suggests that universities should include entrepreneurship courses in their business curriculum in order to enhance students’ capabilities as an entrepreneur.
