Abstract
Artykuł analizuje profil przedsiębiorczy grupy studentów uczestniczących w kursie z zakresu przedsiębiorczości. Celem tego pilotażowego badania była wstępna identyfikacja profilu przedsiębiorczego studentów, w tym ich profilu społeczno-demograficznego w odniesieniu do płci, wieku, narodowości oraz sytuacji rodzinnej. Artykuł przedstawia także postawy przedsiębiorcze badanych studentów w zakresie ich samooceny przedsiębiorczej, celowości oraz wykonalność podjęcia się działalności gospodarczej, a także zamiaru stworzenia firmy i postrzegania ryzyka. Badanie pilotażowe zostało przeprowadzone za pomocą metody ankietyzacji (kwestionariusz ankiety bezpośrednio skierowany do uczestników kursu), która była już z powodzeniem stosowana od kilku lat wśród analogicznych międzynarodowych grupach porównawczych.(abstrakt oryginalny)

This paper presents the entrepreneurial profile of a group of students of the academic entrepreneurship course. The aim of this preliminary exploratory study is to discover the entrepreneurial profile of the students who took part in this course, identifying their socio-demographic profile in terms of sex, age, nationality (there is a high presence of foreign students), and family background. Moreover they are asked to assess their entrepreneurial self-perception, the desirability, feasibility, and intent to create a company, and their perception of risk. For this a questionnaire is used, which was validated in previous studies to discover the entrepreneurial profile of students who take courses on 'Entrepreneurship' in different fields, contexts, and countries. The results will allow the discovery of the entrepreneurial inclination of these students, and, in the future, to compare it with other studies and measure the possible impact of the course on the modification of the said inclination.(original abstract)
