The purpose of the present study was to review the correlation between entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurial mindset, and intention. Specifically, this research focused on the function of self-efficacy as a mediator. Our sample consisted of 368 business administration students from three universities in Mongolia. To control and test the hypotheses, factor reliability analysis, factor appropriateness, correlation analysis, and structural equation modeling (SEM) were used. Entrepreneurship education had a weak but positive relationship with the intentions of entrepreneurship undergraduates. It also had a significantly positive relationship with their entrepreneurial mindset. Moreover, the mindset had a significantly positive alliance with students' intentions. Furthermore, the study identified self-efficacy of entrepreneurial mindset as a partially mediating correlation in the middle of entrepreneurship education and intentions. The study found a relationship between entrepreneurship education and mindset in promoting entrepreneurship. It suggests that universities can play a crucial role in creating a culture of entrepreneurship and supporting students' entrepreneurial intentions by providing effective entrepreneurship curricula
