The universe of the study was the Industrial Engineering students of the institution, stratificated by generations and gender.

The main hypothesis H1, presents that the entrepreneurship profile of the subject of study is High. The secondary hypothesis, H2 that the enterprising profile enlarges as the students advances in their curricula and H3, not differences of kind in the enterprising profile exist.
