This study aimed to determine the factors affecting the entrepreneurial intention of Algerian university students, through a questionnaire distributed to a sample of 245 students from Kasdi Merbah University - Ouargla during the period 2020-2021. And in order to answer the problem, descriptive statistics tools were used and the test for differences was adopted through the statistical program spss2020, where the questionnaire’s stability coefficient reached 85.4%.
The study concluded with a set of results, the most important are: the entrepreneurial intention is mainly affected by the personal capabilities and entrepreneurial characteristics of the student, while the environmental desire and environmental capabilities do not affect the entrepreneurial intention of the student at Ouargla University. Also the results showed the absence of difference in the entrepreneurial intention according to gender, Age, Level and Specialization of students. On the other hand, the differences are mainly due to the city of origin, in favor of Touggourt’s students.
Finally, the study recommended the need to focus on entrepreneurial formation as one of the most important criteria for stimulating the entrepreneurial orientation for individuals, working to improve the business climate, reducing procedures for launching projects, and ensuring market justice by establishing the principles of a market economy and reducing the state’s role in interfering in economic activities.
