Despite attention being paid to entrepreneurial intensions in the literature, little empirical research has been conducted on developing the link between personal characteristics, education and exposure in transition economies, and moreover, only a few empirical studies have investigated this issue in Slovakia. The conducted empirical survey examines entrepreneurial intensions of students in Slovakia. The empirical findings are based on 235 responses from students. To evaluate the entrepreneurial intensions the questionnaire of own construction drawing heavily from already used questionnaires was used. The authors have used Kruskal-Wallis ANOVA as an evaluation method. Based on the results it can be concluded the entrepreneurial intensions are determined by gender and family background. Higher levels of entrepreneurial intentions are confirmed among males and among students from entrepreneurial families. This study contributes to the European research that studies the entrepreneurial intensions by means of an empirical investigation in a transition economy such as Slovakia.
