This article aims to describe the university students' career intentions from the theory of planned behavior. Data are obtained from GUESSS, an international research that examines students' career intentions (founders, employees, successors). The main findings show that in Colombia prevails the intention to be an entrepreneur and students' career intentions seem to follow the international pattern of being an employee and later a founder. Also, the study states significant differences for career intentions in the study fields, education level and academic performance, while gender and age range of students are not significantly different for career intentions. © 2017.
