As can be seen from the bar chart above, the number of university students who started their own business has increased markedly from 2003 to 2015. Based on the statistics given above, the number was only about 7.5 million in 2003, and it jump up to more than 20 million in 2015.
Some driving factors that contribute to the above mentioned change may be summarized as follows. First, once they start their own undertakings, the young will not go to compete with others in terms of seeking a job and instead, they can provide some job opportunities for others. In addition, the self-employed students are the masters of their own destiny and exposed to many more uncertainties and setbacks, they will develop perseverance, stamina and the indomitable spirit that are indispensable to all the great entrepreneurs.
