Title: DOES AGROPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION PREDICT STUDENTS’ ENTREPRENEURIAL ORIENTATION AND INTENTION? EVIDENCE FROM A DEVELOPING COUNTRY
Asliza Yusoff: ˝I know about ABSRC Venice 2016 from Michigan State University Conference Alert. Before deciding to join ABSRC Venice 2016, I went through the online proceedings of previous conferences which were published on the ABSRC web page. I found the articles which were presented in this conference were interesting so I decided to submit my paper to this Conference. I believe I have made a correct decision.The organizer and conference chair are very helpful and very quick in replying my emails regarding my enquiries. The place for the conference is also comfortable and located in the city of Mestre. It was a great pleasure for me to have an opportunity to meet with other researchers and scholars in my research area and develop meaningful network with them. I learned a lot from comments, ideas and questions asked during my presentation. I also would like to thank Prof.Dr.Ajda Fošner for awarding me with Best Paper Award in this conference. The award was so meaningful for me. It inspires me to work harder in my PhD journey. Thank you Professor and thank you ABSRC Venice 2016. ˝
