Abstract: This study aims to identify the impacts of entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial implementation on entrepreneurial intention among undergraduate students from one of public university in the Northern Region of Malaysia. The theoretical framework for this study is developed based on the literature review. In this study, 488 usable respondents are obtained by using a survey method. Based on the results, it is found that entrepreneurial education and entrepreneurial implementation have significant impact towards students’ entrepreneurial intention. The findings presented that students in this institution have moderately high levels of entrepreneurial education (mean=3.70), entrepreneurial implementation (mean=3.12) and entrepreneurial intention (mean=3.64). Results also presented that entrepreneurial education is significantly related to entrepreneurial intention (β=.55, p=.00). Other factor which is entrepreneurial implementation also significantly related to entrepreneurial intention (β=.52, p=.00). These study findings will be fruitful for Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) including the policy makers and academicians to identify the factors which can create the impact on the university students to be involved into entrepreneurship. Next, the results of this study will provide a guide for the university managements on the formulation and implementation of policies. This knowledge on entrepreneurial education and implementation may help the country to eventually reduce the Malaysian unemployment rate. Last but not least, several directions for the future study have been suggested.
