Abstract: This study examined whether institutional settings and personal attitude have an influence on entrepreneurial intention to start a business. The study was a longitudinal which took female undergraduate students at the Institute of Accountancy Arusha as case study. The objective of the study was to investigate the role of institutional settings and personal attitude in influencing female with undergraduate degrees in starting business in Tanzania. Purposive samplings were applied to pick up the sample. Data was analyzed using Pearson Correlation and a Paired sample T-Test. The results provide sufficient evidence to sustain the claim that institutional settings and personal attitude have an impact on students’ starting a firm in future. Institutional settings have been associated with changes in attitudes and intentions towards entrepreneurship as proper infrastructure need to be compatible with the student-centered approach. Entrepreneurship infrastructure is likely to heighten awareness of entrepreneurship, increase self-confidence and intentions, but understanding and developing entrepreneurship requires an integrated research and teaching effort.
