Paulina Kramarz , Maciej Dębski , Lidia Luty


Objective: The main aims of the thesis were to compare entrepreneurial behaviour trends in a group of Polish and foreign students and an attempt to define the determinants of such behaviours. Research Design & Methods: Research was conducted using a questionnaire. Descriptive statistics methods were also used. Findings: The undertaken research shows the diversity of entrepreneurial behaviours among both Polish and foreign students surveyed. Foreign students participating in the study showed a greater propensity to take risks and greater flexibility in their business plans, which may be indicative of greater skills and ability in adapting to the requirements of the labor market. Contribution & Value Added: In the light of the undertaken research, it can be assumed that the state of the education system may account for one of the most important factors in facilitating change of the growing labor supply into benefits in the form of economic recovery and the creation of employment opportunities.
