Intentional behavior and activities of entrepreneurs, both crucial for the initiation and further successful business enterprise, are difficult to explain without the psychology of entrepreneurship. The purpose of this study was to test a model of students' entrepreneurial intentions determinants. Data were collected on a sample of 301 students of economy and non-economy studies from all over the Croatia. Statistical analysis was made using hierarchical regression analyzes conducted in three steps, first on the entire sample, and then on each group separately. In the first step, we introduced antecedents' of entrepreneurial self-efficacy as predictors. In a second step, we introduced the entrepreneurial self-efficacy, and in the third step the desirability of entrepreneurship. While all predictor variables have positive univariate correlation with entrepreneurial intentions, on the entire sample the variables of social support for entrepreneurship were not showed as statistically significant predictor of criteria. Also, the model in both samples explained approximately equally large percentage of the criteria’s variance, but found some differences in terms of the model’s structure in regards to the orientation of students.
