Abstract in English: This study investigates factors influencing disabled students toward Entrepreneurship Intention (EI) by employing the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) model. Three antecedents of EI were tested, namely Attitude, Subjective Norm (SN) and Perceived Behavioural Control. Focused on the disabled students in public universities in Klang Valley, the respondents are those students who currently study at the universities regardless of any mode, status and level of study. This study used a quantitative approach, where a survey was the research instrument. Out of 500 questionnaires distributed online through social media like WhatsApp and email, 154 responded to the questionnaires. The result of correlation found that all constructs were positively related to EI; however, when regression analysis was performed, the SN was found to be insignificant. This study has several limitations, such as the small number of respondents due to impairments of the respondents. It only focused on disabled students studying at public universities in Klang Valley. This study contributed to fill the gap of TPB since it focused on EI in disabled students’ context where most of the previous studies focused on nondisabled students at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). This study could spark the research from future researcher to study EI on other Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) context, such as disabled Millennia, private HEIs, etc.
