Entrepreneurial growth can be accelerated by understanding what makes a would-be entrepreneur. This study is an attempt to understand Big Five personality factors of students pursuing professional education and their entrepreneurial achievement motivation. In this study 133 university students from Delhi NCR were surveyed to examine the relationship between their entrepreneurial achievement motivation and Big Five personality traits. The study shows that the entrepreneurial achievement motivation is a function of conscientiousness among Big Five personality dimensions. Our research suggests that creating a structured environment with clear policies may encourage students to be organized, disciplined, and proactive about learning and being an entrepreneur.
