The data was obtained from a survey of 183 students of the education management study program at Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (UNY) from various college intakes and various levels: undergraduate, master, and doctoral degrees. Descriptive analysis was employed to evaluate the degree of each variable after the collection of data, while to see the effect between variables, the SmartPLS application was utilized to apply the PLS-SEM method, and it was found that certain elements had an impact on the perceptions of student of education study programs towards entrepreneurship, such as entrepreneurial education, prior entrepreneurial experience, supportive entrepreneurial environment, entrepreneurial motivation, and entrepreneurial risk tolerance.
