Entrepreneurship and the establishment and development of small and medium-sized enterprises represent one of the foundation stones of the development of both the economy and society in general. SMEs are the backbone of every economy; they are the crucial driver of advancement, innovation, competitiveness and employment. Education, and particularly, higher education, create human resources for future economic and social development, which is crucial for the national economies and societies on the ladder of competitiveness both in the region and the world in the future. Numerous EU and national strategic documents underline that entrepreneurship should be promoted and encouraged in educational institutions and curricula. Additionally, curricula should be adapted in a way that provides students with the necessary entrepreneurial competences, stimulate innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, and direct more young people to decide to start their business ventures. The primary aim of this research is to determine the entrepreneurial intentions of the student population and their correlation with entrepreneurship education and the perception of entrepreneurship. The research has been conducted at the University of Mostar from April to June 2020. For the research purpose, a questionnaire was used and delivered online to students of several faculties of the University of Mostar from different areas and fields of science and education, including the first, second and third educational cycle. The data were analysed in IBM SPSS Statistics 25.0. The results were expressed as number and percentage and mean and standard deviation. Regression analysis was performed to examine the contribution of individual dimensions to entrepreneurial intention. The limit of statistical significance was set at 0.05. The research results showed the entrepreneurial intentions of students, their entrepreneurial education and perception of entrepreneurship, as well as the connection of the two. The paper has also made a comparison with similar research and provided recommendations for future research.
