This work determines which elements influence the potential Propensity to act for entrepreneurship (PA) of university students from a gender perspective. Based on Shapero and Sokol's (1982) Model of the Entrepreneurial Event and Liñán and Chen's (2009) empirical research on modelling variables to measure the propensity to act for entrepreneurship, a questionnaire was administered to a total of 663 student respondents. The results showed that there are similarities and differences between student's PA. In the case of the variables that influence the PA of men and women, we found the perceived convenience, the perception of viability and having an entrepreneurial parent. Among those that differed between both sexes, the desirability of being an entrepreneurial person and some specific abilities stood out. This research highlights the importance of adapting entrepreneurial training to each student.
