Shown is that entrepreneurship from the point of view of sociology is a multidimensional social phenomenon. In the socio-economic sciences, there are several approaches to understanding entrepreneurship. In a generalized form, the self-organizing activity of an entrepreneur is characterized by a number of features: creativity and initiative; conscious risk and personal responsibility for decisions and risks; regular search and implementation of new economic opportunities. As a result of a sociological study on the basis of a branch university, the career attitudes of students and their attitude to entrepreneurship were revealed in the context of the subjective perception of personal qualities and professional competencies of entrepreneurs.

Key words: youth, entrepreneurship, personal qualities, professional competencies.
