In India, the development of entrepreneurship is becoming more important as it is one of the driving forces for achievement of economic development and job creation. Entrepreneurship is the process of creating value by developing the necessary time and effort, assuming the various factors such as financial, physical, and social risks, for rewards of monetary and personal satisfaction. The objective of the study is to investigate the factors associated with entrepreneurial intention among post graduate students in select universities of Telangana. A sample of 150 university students across the State was included in the research. Factor analysis was used to identify factors that motivate students towards entrepreneurship. Five factors which motivate entrepreneurship were identified - achievement drive, autonomy drive, personal traits, govt. assistance, learning drive.
