The purpose of this quantitative research was to determine the best fit model involving the following exogenous variables: entrepreneurial education, entrepreneurial attitude and stakeholder support system in relation to endogenous variable – students’ entrepreneurial intention. For the purpose of data collection, a survey questionnaire was administered to the five State, Universities and Colleges – Higher Educational Institutions (SUCs-HEIs) in Davao Region, Philippines with 463 enrolled students in business related courses. Structural equation modelling was used to find the best fit model. The results show that entrepreneurial education, entrepreneurial attitude and stakeholder support system have a significant relationship with students’ entrepreneurial intention. However, among the three identified exogenous variables only entrepreneurial education and stakeholder support system emerged as key predictors of students’ entrepreneurial intention as depicted in the final and best fit model of this study.
