Adetayo, Janet Oyebola


This study investigated the level of entrepreneurship aspiration among tertiary institution students in Ogun State. A total of 300 students selected through simple random sampling techniques from the Faculty of Education of Olabisi Onabanjo University participated in the study.  Three research questions were raised and answered in the study.  A researcher designed and validated questionnaire titled: Students Entrepreneurship Aspiration Scale was the only major instrument used for data collection.  The frequency count, simple percentage and t-test of significance at 0.05 level of confidence were used for data analysis.  Findings from the study revealed that majority of the students possessed low level of entrepreneurship aspiration.  There was no significant gender difference in the students’ level of entrepreneurship aspiration; and several reasons were given by the participants for the recorded low level of entrepreneurship aspiration. It was therefore recommended among others that effort should be made to create positive attitude to entrepreneurship, as well as the need for all stakeholders to encourage youths to set up businesses of their own.
