Entrepreneurship is a multidetermined phenomenon, being relevant the understanding of the personal aspects associated with it. The present study aimed to analyze evidence of validity based on the internal structure for an adapted measure of entrepreneurial attitude in a sample of 272 university students. For the analysis of the internal structure of the scale, an exploratory factorial analysis was performed. It was found a factorial solution of five factors for the Brazilian context (leadership, achievement, risk, control and creativity). The reliability of the measurement factors was estimated by means of the alpha and omega coefficient for ordinal data varying between 0.56 and 0.74. It is recommended to use the scale in further studies in order to ascertain evidence of validity in other contexts and to investigate relevant variables and consequent of an entrepreneurial attitude that optimize the conditions for evaluating entrepreneurship in professional orientation practices.
