Utilizing bibliometric analysis, this study identifies academic gaps, research trends, and data pertaining to student entrepreneurial activities. The authors conducted a qualitative analysis of 984 selected studies from the Google Scholar database. Data that have been analyzed include trends in publishing years, the number of papers published, the number of citations, and frequently used keywords in research on students’ intentions to start their own enterprises from 2007 to 2022. Additionally, by developing network visualizations, co-authorship network maps, and keyword co-occurrence network maps over a 15-year period (2007–2022), this study validates how well biometric analysis works. In this study, VOSviewer’s mapping capabilities helped identify six clusters (a rise in study themes, hot themes, notable authors, eminent journals, publications, and primary research directions). The study’s findings aid in directing future research into entrepreneurship and provide policymakers and directors with relevant takeaways for encouraging student entrepreneurship intentions.
