Nigeria is an agrarian economy and the recognition of entrepreneurship as a mover of national development has made it to gain popularity in her educational system in recent years. This study focused on the factors influencing Entrepreneurial Intentions (EIs) of undergraduate agricultural students in Nigeria using Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). Well structured, pre-tested questionnaire was used to gather relevant information from final year undergraduate agricultural students in private, state and federal government owned universities in Nigeria using multistage sampling techniques. The data were analysed with descriptive statistics, factor analysis and multiple regression model. The results showed that personal attitude towards entrepreneurship, subjective norms and perceived educational support were the main factors influencing students’ EI positively at (P<0.01). Arising from this revelation, the study recommended the development of positive attitude towards becoming entrepreneurs as well as enhancement of educational facilities in the universities to improve students’ EI.
