ABSTRACT
This paper illustrates research on the application of the theory of planned behavior to predict employment status choice for undergraduate business students at a university in the United States. This study replicates a study conducted on Norwegian students which found support for the theory of planned behavior as applied to employment status choice intention. Gender and self-employment experience were found not to influence actual employment status. The most important relationships found that self-employment intentions are directly influenced by attitude and pressure from social norms but not from perceived behavior control. This implies that students lack the self-confidence required to be self-employed.
