This study is trying to shed some lights on the ways that entrepreneurship intentions are developed. Depending on the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) the study tries to trace the effect of Omani Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) student’s attitudes towards entrepreneurial intentions to start-up. Practical analysis has been carried out on a sample of (2123) HEIs’ students of Oman. Through self-administered questionnaire, the data was collected and analysed using appropriate statistics tools. Hypothesis was tested and correlation matrices were developed to test the correlations between these two variables. The results show that the entrepreneurial attitudes of HEIs’ students in Oman positively related to their entrepreneurial intentions. This relationship between attitudes and intention was measured and it was found that the amount of variation in students’ intentions that is accounted for attitudes is 55 percent. The F ratio is found large 2550.7, which reflects the greater variation in intention that is explained by attitudes.
