Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 236)


For avoiding the waste of entrepreneurship resources and resolving the problem of lacking pertinence in entrepreneurship education, as well as to realize the value of the limited resources to the greatest degree, fifty students who have established their own enterprises are surveyed with questionnaires to find the eighteen main factors influencing the entrepreneurship. Taking the correlation between these factors into account, the principal component analysis method was applied and five main components representing the different indicators characteristics of entrepreneurs were filtered out. Finally the score model in college student entrepreneurship can be constructed. Through this model, entrepreneurial aspirations of college students and the groups with higher scores can be obtained, which can improve the pertinence of entrepreneurship education. Therefore, this model provides a reasonable basis for the effective delivery of entrepreneurship education resources.
