AbstractEntrepreneurship has been established as a strategic element in the continuous improvement of each country. Particularly in higher education institutions, entrepreneurship plays a very important role, allowing its students a comprehensive and suitable training that encourages them to achieve their goals. Entrepreneurship is closely linked to education, specifically building skills both professionally and personally. For this reason, it is necessary for the student to expand their work activities and identify opportunities in new sectors through entrepreneurship, in which they develop a distinctive capacity for the future professional and help them to enter the labor market; hence the need to analyze your entrepreneurial intention. The present study is framed in a quantitative approach, with a descriptive and cross-sectional non-experimental design. For the collection of the information, the documentary analysis was used and a questionnaire was applied via the web, developed under the guidelines of the Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students´ Survey (GUESSS). The sample consisted of 224 students belonging to the surgical instrumentation programs of three universities in the city of Barranquilla. The results of the research showed that the entrepreneurial intention increases in students to the extent that they have an adequate perception of what entrepreneurship entails, and the confidence with which they manage and exploit their own capacities upon graduating from the academic program. It has been shown that if students are frequently in the realization of projects and activities related to business creation, this will positively impact their entrepreneurial minds, towards the search for new opportunities. In addition, the design and implementation of strategies related to education for entrepreneurship and the articulation of these with the substantive functions of universities, would strengthen the culture of entrepreneurship in students, specifically in those of the surgical instrumentation program, promoting in them different capacities to face occupational contexts.
