Resumé

The question is, for adults in Egypt and Iran, are education, training
and competencies positively interrelated and is this human capital benefitting
intention to start a business?– Data on people’s human capital and intentions
have been collected by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor in 2008. The
sample is 2,068 adults in Egypt and 2,610 adults in Iran who were
not owning-managing a starting or operating business. Multivariate analyses
reveal considerable effects of human capital in Egypt and Iran. Education
benefits training, training during schooling benefits training after schooling,
education and training largely benefit competencies such as self-efficacy and
opportunity-alertness and education, training and competencies all benefit
intention to start a business, but effects differ between Egypt and Iran. The
study is valuable and original by demonstrating considerable effects of higher
education that are channelled through training and competencies and raise
performance, with generalisation from samples to adults in Egypt and Iran.
