The purpose of this study was first to investigate on how participation in entrepreneurship training influence entrepreneurial intention (EI), entrepreneurial self-efficacy (ESE) and risk-perceptions of students. Secondly, we aimed to examine on how the role of teachers (RT) and teaching methods (TM) influence EI, ESE and risk-perceptions of students. Third, we aimed to check the mediating role of entrepreneurial self-efficacy on the relationship between dependent (e.g., RT & TM) and independent variable (e.g., EI and risk). The results showed that participation in an entrepreneurship course were positive and significant effect on ESE. While the effect of the courses on EI and risk-perceptions were both positive but not significant. Role of teachers and teaching methods both confirmed to have positive and significant effects on EI, ESE, and risk-perceptions. With regard to mediating role of ESE, teaching methods effect on both EI and risk were fully mediated. While role of teachers effect on EI was not mediated and effect on risk was partially mediated
