According to Akhtar and Mir (2014) entrepreneurship is really important; and the establishment and growth of businesses can thereby stimulate economic development and employment. According to Ajzen (1991) the decision to establish a new business is regarded as a planned behavior and it has been proven that there is a strong relationship between the intentions to the actual act. Shapero and Sokol (1982) and Honig (2004) assert that entrepreneurial intention is the best predictor of entrepreneurial behavior. This is also true with Kelly et al (2016) that entrepreneurial intention is the likelihood of a person a start a new business and it is considered a significant factor of entrepreneurial activity. With this, it is important to examine the factors that influence the entrepreneurial intentions of the CBPA-BSBA graduates particularly in terms of their attitude, social norm, and perceived behavioral control. Moreover, descriptive-correlational research design was utilized in this study and a total of 84 respondents participated in this study. The results revealed that the perceived behavioral control and attitude have a significant relationship with entrepreneurial intention. Thus, it is highly encourage that the CCSPC-CBPA shall develop strategies that can develop attraction towards entrepreneurship and perceived easiness of creating a business through actual business demonstrations
