Abstract: Despite the attention being paid to entrepreneurial intentions in the literature, little empirical research has been conducted on developing the link between personal characteristics, education and exposure to entrepreneurship in transition economies. Moreover, only a few empirical studies have investigated this issue in Slovakia. The conducted empirical study based on a survey examines entrepreneurial intentions of students in Slovakia. The empirical findings are based on 235 responses from students. To evaluate the entrepreneurial intentions, the questionnaire of own construction drawing heavily from already used questionnaires was used. The authors have used Kruskal-Wallis test as an evaluation method. Based on the results it can be concluded the entrepreneurial intentions are determined by gender and family background. Higher levels of entrepreneurial intentions are confirmed among males and among students from entrepreneur families. This study contributes to the European research that studies the entrepreneurial intentions by means of an empirical investigation in a transition economy such as Slovakia.
