Purpose: The objective of the study is to examine the entrepreneurial intentions and using crowdfunding for raising funds to fulfil this desire among university management students in South Korea.

Design/methodology/approach: The study employs the theory of planned behaviour (TPB) and the influence of entrepreneurial education to examine entrepreneurial intentions. The effect of entrepreneurial intentions is further tested on crowdfunding intentions along with facilitating conditions provided by the crowdfunding platforms. The data was collected from 234 university management students in South Korea. The data was analyzed through partial least square structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) using SmartPLS 3.2.

Findings: The results suggest a positive influence of attitude, perceived behavioural control and entrepreneurial education on entrepreneurial intentions. Further, entrepreneurial intentions and facilitating conditions have a positive relationship with using crowdfunding to raise funds.

Originality: The study is original and the first one to investigate the relationship between entrepreneurial intentions and using crowdfunding among university management students in South Korea.

Keywords: Entrepreneurial, Crowdfunding, Intentions, Management, South Korea.
