my paper

STUDENTS from Singapore have the third highest rate of wishing to be entrepreneurs worldwide, after those in Mexico and South Africa, an international study has shown.

The Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students' Survey in 2008 showed that 81.4 per cent of students surveyed in Singapore indicated an interest in entrepreneurship.

In fact, 49.3 per cent said that they would like to start their own business in the long term, which is five years or more after graduation.

This is significantly higher than the international average of 42.8 per cent.
