Entrepreneurship education at institution of higher education seeks to foster entrepreneurial mindset while instilling the ethos of entrepreneurial consciousness, abilities, and mental attitude in students to encourage entrepreneurial pursuits as graduates. This study examines the influence of entrepreneurship education on start-up intent as well as the arbitrating role of entrepreneurial mind-sets of university students in Cambodia.

Research Methodology and Findings
Conducted analysis of data collected using structured and semi-structured questionnaires distributed to (n=86) university students. Structural equation modeling confirmed the role of mindsets as a mediator between entrepreneurship education and start-up intent.

Implications of Study
The students who participated in the study are students who are pursuing dual degree offered by an international university in Cambodia in collaboration with a public university in the United Stated. The limited parameters of this paper and its findings call for more in-depth methodological research in exploring the the influence of entrepreneurship education on business students in Cambodia, this time with the sample coming from both public and international universities across Cambodia. Despite the limitations, this study adds significant evidence to the literature from least developed economy (LDC) such as Cambodia, and how entrepreneurship education can be pivotal for aiding the country to achieve developing nation status
