The study utilizes the entrepreneurship support model by Turker and Selcuk (2008). Accordingly, the study objectives are to test the influence of the perceived support (educational, relational, structural) model on entrepreneurship intentions among Omani youngsters. In terms of research methodology, the proposed methodology is a quantitative, cross-sectional, and explanatory research design. For data collection, a survey is used based on previously developed measures.
