Novi Chandra, Sucipto Asan


The Indonesian millennial generation, especially the student group, is the potential resources  for the development of  the Indonesian future economy. This research used the Goal-Directed Behavior Model to determine the relationship between attitudes, subjective norms, anticipated positive emotions, negative emotions, entrepreneurial desires, frequency of past behavior, per-ceived behavioral control on Indonesian students' entrepreneurial intentions. This research in-volved 365 respondents. This quantitative research uses an online survey using purposive sam-pling and non-probability methods. The PLS-SEM is used for data processing. The results showed a positive relationship between attitudes, subjective norms, anticipated negative emotions, perceived behavioral control, and entrepreneurial desire. This research also found a positive relationship between entrepreneurial desire, frequency of past behavior, and per-ceived behavioral control on entrepreneurial intentions. It is hoped that this research can pro-vide a theoretical contribution to the Goal-Directed Behavior model framework as well as con-tributions from entrepreneurship education institutions in Indonesia.
