The collected data was analyzed by applying SPSS analysis with a different test based on Analysis of Variance (ANOVA).

However, implicit motivation for controlling (need for power) presents a significant difference in the personal value among the students before (pre) and after (post) participating the MED activities. Whereas, explicit motivation including motives for achievement, depics a significant difference in students who take the MED program. Explicit motivation for affiliation (need for affiliation) and explicit motivation for controlling (need for power) indicates no difference in both before (pre) and after (post) participating in MED. From these results, the researchers concluded that the entrepreneurship program did not provide a significant change in entrepreneurial motivation among the participating students.
