The GUESSS Project investigates students' career choice intentions
across the world. Of special interest are entrepreneurial intentions
in different forms, such as founding an own firm, acquiring one, or
taking over the parents' family business.
Founded in 2003, GUESSS has grown remarkably since then. The 5th wave of data collection in Spring 2011 takes place in 27 countries, with around 1 Million of students from more than 200 Universities addressed.
GUESSS is organized and managed by the Swiss Research Institute of Small Business and Enterpreneurship at the University of St. Gallen (KMU-HSG). The aim is to contribute not only to practice and policy, but also to the scientific community.
