Description

The data presented the level of entrepreneurial intention among university students after they have completed an entrepreneurship course through synchronous and asynchronous online learning modes. A comparison of the entrepreneurial intention level between the two groups of students was also provided. The data were quantitative in nature. They were collected through questionnaire survey method and consisted of nominal and interval levels data. Specifically, data pertaining to students’ background such as gender, programs of study and online learning modes, and entrepreneurial intention were gathered. The population consisted of full-time students who have completed an entrepreneurship course in a local university. A total of 315 students were selected as the sample through simple random sampling technique. They were required to answer an online self-administered questionnaire. Mean and standard deviation were used to determine the level of entrepreneurial intention. While independent sample t-test was carried out to compare the entrepreneurial intention level between students from synchronous and asynchronous learning modes. The data demonstrated that differences were found in entrepreneurial intention between the two groups of students. The data are useful because they shed lights on differences in level of entrepreneurial intention between students who completed an entrepreneurship course based on synchronous and asynchronous online learning modes. Furthermore, the data can be reused for various statistical descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analyses in future. They provided new information regarding offering entrepreneurship course through online learning method, especially during current and post COVID-19 pandemic period which emphasizes on Internet-based learning.
