Chapter 12: Entrepreneurial intentions of immigrant Chinese students in Ireland
The chapter examines how well the theory of planned behaviour (TPB) explains the entrepreneurial intentions of immigrant Chinese students in Ireland. The study gathered data by distributing a TPB-based questionnaire to Chinese students in Ireland and 122 responses were received. The study contributes to the existing knowledge in the fields of immigrant entrepreneurship and student entrepreneurial intentions by exploring immigrant entrepreneurship from the perspective of Chinese students who study at Irish third level institutions. Scholars have rarely explored this area so far. This study impacts the Chinese government’s comprehension of their overseas students’ present entrepreneurial intentions regarding establishing businesses in host countries and deepens the understanding of the Chinese entrepreneurial spirit. On the Irish side, this study assists the relevant government departments in developing more favourable policies for those potential international entrepreneurs by encouraging them to contribute more to Ireland’s SME economy.
