Entrepreneurs are economic leaders contributing to the country's economy and national development. Therefore, governments and academic institutions in the West and Asia take the initiative to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills. This research aims to identify predicting factors that inspire entrepreneurial intention among Malaysians. The sample of this study consists of 90 undergraduate students in Malaysian public and private universities. The data was collected through a survey questionnaire using a simple random sampling technique. Descriptive statistics and regression analysis of SPSS were employed to analyse the data. This research revealed that entrepreneurial education, age, personal traits and culture predict entrepreneurial intention among Malaysian university students. Moreover, this study found a moderate level of entrepreneurial intention among Malaysian students to become entrepreneurs in the future. Hence, this study recommends that policymakers, including the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia (MOHE) and Higher Learning Institutions, enhance entrepreneur education while promoting entrepreneur culture in academic institutions.
