In India unemployment has been found high. To increase their employment opportunities, it is crucial for the graduates to determine who they are, what skills and attributes they possess and what are the ways their self-knowledge can be utilized to leverage their knowledge of entrepreneurship attitudes, intentions and behavior. Hence, there is a necessity for entrepreneurship awareness programs to teach the graduates. The study was conducted among students who pursue MBA, BE, and MCA from Engineering and Management Colleges in Coimbatore district. Structured questionnaire was used to collect data. The results of the study reveal that “perceived" desirability is positively associated with the formulation of entrepreneurial intention”; and “breadth and positiveness of awareness, knowledge, and skills is positively associated with perceived desirability”. Further, suggestions and conclusion are discussed in the paper.
