Abstract

Entrepreneurship has been a functioning term in academic literature for a long time, however, the research and discussions concerning its importance among the youth take more place in modern science. In economics, this term denotes a tendency to take new risks or seek and realize unconventional projects. The direct approach is to start and run one’s own business. A one-person business activity is the dominant form of an idea realization about the entrepreneurship on a small range. From the moment the annex I to an ordinance 364/2004 came to life, the micro-enterprise stands out as the most common when it comes to the size of one-person business activities. The article concentrates on the measurement and analysis of the level of businesses among students of Lublin universities, related mainly to the desire and initiative of starting-up and running one’s own business. The aim of the article is to increase the level of perception of the knowledge about the youth’s entrepreneurial attitude, especially those possessing extended economic and financial knowledge. The research was possible thanks to a survey covering the representative sample of the population of students of economics, management, and finance at Lublin universities. The choice of this sample was random and focused on different majors. The results and conclusions were collected according to the majors, age, gender, and previous experience of the responders.
