The participation of women in entrepreneurship is growing, and with it, the interest in understanding their behavior and motivations. This study explores the entrepreneurial intention of female students in STEM areas. We aim to understand the individual and university factors that affect entrepreneurial intention. We analyzed 63,633 responses from GUESSS data of STEM career students from 54 countries. Our findings highlight the effect of entrepreneurial learning and the moderating effect of the university environment on women's entrepreneurial intention.
