Drawing on the theory of planned behaviour, this research attempts to examine the impacts of students' entrepreneurial learning on their entrepreneurial intention. In this study, self-report data were collected from 334 students in eight higher education institutions in Hong Kong. The results of the data analysis supported the association between entrepreneurial learning and entrepreneurial intention, as well as the mediating effect of entrepreneurial self-efficacy. The moderating effect of openness was also found to be significant, whereas that of entrepreneurial climate was not. This study provides practical implications to address the issues of low start-up rates of entrepreneurship among university students and some recommendations to university educators.
