The Effect of Business Administration Students' Individual Values on Their Entrepreneurial Tendency in Istanbul
Individual values' effect on the entrepreneurial tendency is an important research topic in the field of entrepreneurship. This research aims to investigate the effect of individual values of business administration students on their entrepreneurial tendency, and to compare the effects of public and foundation university Business Administration students' individual values on their entrepreneurial tendency in Istanbul. Individual values are measured through Schwartz Values Inventory which has 58 items, and entrepreneurial tendency is measured via a scale which has 50 items and is the combination of four different scales developed by Yılmaz and Sünbül (2009), Börü (2006), Bozkurt and Baştürk (2011), and Bozkurt (n.d.). The research was conducted at Istanbul University, Marmara University, Bogazici University, Bahcesehir University, Istanbul Aydin University, Istanbul Commerce University and Yeditepe University with 504 final-year students studying at Business Administration departments. As the result of validity analyses, 6 factors for individual values scale were identified, and 9 factors - for entrepreneurial tendency scale. In the course of multiple linear regression analyses, it is found that there is a significant effect of university students' some individual values on their entrepreneurial tendency, and this effect partially differentiates between public university students and foundation university students.
