This empirical paper is grounded on theory of planned behaviour to measure entrepreneurial Intentions of

Afghan Business Students. The problem addressed in this study is to cultivate careers through entrepreneurship

for the betterment of individuals at micro and macro level. Quantitative methodology is acknowledged in this

study while data is collected through five point Likert scale questionnaire adopted from previous research

studies and Structure Equation Modelling (SEM) approach is used for analysis purpose by applying SMART

PLS3 Algorithm in order to measure entrepreneurial intentions of Afghan business students. This Study

developed five hypotheses based on literature and concluded the findings with three hypotheses substantiated

while two are not. At a climax of the findings, this paper found that one of the well-established hypotheses is

not substantiated in the context of Afghanistan. Moreover, this paper recommends qualitative study to explore

the possible reasons of lack of support for the hypothesis in the context of the study.
