Abstract

This study had the objective of analyzing the dimensions of the entrepreneurial mindset and the characteristics of the entrepreneurial behavior in undergraduate students and professors of a higher education institution that develops entrepreneurial education activities and projects. Its methodology is a theoretical-empirical research, with a quantitative approach, of the descriptive type. Data collection was performed using McClelland’s Entrepreneurial Behavioral Characteristics Questionnaire (MSI, 1990), and Mannerelli’s (2014) Forma Mentis Questionnaire to analyze the entrepreneurial mindset, and data were analyzed with statistical tests. It can be inferred, from the results of this research, that aspects of the entrepreneurial mindset and behavior can be developed in professors and students from a proposal of entrepreneurial education. The understanding of the entrepreneurial nature and how the entrepreneur thinks and acts can guide the actions to be carried out with the purpose of creating, especially in emerging countries, subjects, organizations and entrepreneurial environments that generate human development, competitiveness and economic growth, and social advancement.
