    The current research aims to discover the impact of entrepreneurship education on entrepreneurial intentions of undergraduate students. This is achieved through individual factors (attitude towards behavior, entrepreneurial motivation, entrepreneurial resource and perceived behavioral control) and entrepreneurship education. A quantitative survey design was used to collect information from a study sample of 255 undergraduate agriculture science students from the College of Agriculture Education, Mampong - University of Education, Winneba, Ghana. Results indicated that individual factors and entrepreneurship education have a direct positive influence on entrepreneurial intentions. Also, entrepreneurship education moderates the influence of individual factors on entrepreneurial intentions among undergraduate students. In conclusion, using agriculture science students, entrepreneurship education plays a major role in equipping and enhancing students with entrepreneurial knowledge and developing entrepreneurial interest among undergraduate students. The practical implications and future scope are discussed as well.

The five Service Quality dimensions; Tangibility, reliability, responsiveness, assurance and empathy, patient satisfaction and loyalty to the hospital were the variables well-thought-out for this study. A path analysis was done utilizing SmartPLS V3.2.8; a second-generation multivariate data analysis method (PLSSEM) in order to compute path coefficients, direct and indirect effects of the variables on patient's satisfaction and also loyalty to the hospital. The study prompted that empathy, responsiveness and tangibility (not assurance and reliability) impact patients’ satisfaction and patient's satisfaction is directly related to patients’ loyalty to the hospital/clinic.
