This chapter presents one of the first studies on the entrepreneurial orientation of women university students in Italy. For a large sample of students (16,407) from the Polytechnic University of Marche (Italy), the sources of entrepreneurial intent are estimated, distinguishing between the propensity to start a new business for male and female students. The main differences in entrepreneurial attitudes, intentions and behaviour between men and women can be attributed to differences in social orientation and behavioural motivation. The study underlines the fundamental role of the universities in influencing the students’ entrepreneurial propensity; this is in line with considering universities as the source of new knowledge for building a knowledge society.
