GUESSS The international research project GUESSS (Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students' Survey) investigates students' career choice intentions on a global level. GUESSS was initiated in 2003, and is managed and organized by the CFB-HSG/KMU-HSG today. The main resarch focus are career choice intentions of students in general, and their entrepreneurial intentions in particular. Several influencing factors are investigated, such as University context, family context, motives, and attitudes. Moreover, we are especially interested in students with family business background, who have the opportunity to take over their parents' business. Between October 2013 and March 2014 the sixth data collection wave since 2003 took place. In total, 34 countries were involved in GUESSS 2013/2014, which lead to a dataset with the responses of more than 109'000 students from 759 universities. The international GUESSS report has just been published and can be downloaded by clicking the link on the right-hand side of this webpage. A main finding of the latest GUESSS edition is that entrepreneurial intentions of students have been decreasing in many countries compared to 2011.
