dc.description.abstract The main aim of this article is to quantify the significant indicators of social environment, including the advantages and disadvantages from entrepreneurship determining the entrepreneurial propensity among university students in Czech Republic, Slovak Republic and Poland. 1352 students from 25 Czech, Slovak and Poland universities were involved in the questionnaire survey. Methods of descriptive statistics, Z-score, Chi-Square Goodness of Fit, Multiple linear regression were used for evaluation of the hypotheses. Such attributes as irregularity of income and lack of spending time with the family negatively impact the propensity for entrepreneurship. These disadvantages are significant attributes in all three countries in our research. Financial resources, better career growth and fuller self-realisation are the attributes which positively impact the propensity for entrepreneurship. Attitude of the students from Poland on the attribute that politicians as well as general public consider businesspersons to be beneficial for society are more positive than the attitude of the students from Czech and Slovak Republic. The achieved results may serve to improve the business environment in the countries where this research took place. © Foundation of International Studies, 2019. en
