The population (N=909) of this study included undergraduate students in the fields of Economics, Accounting and Management, from the Islamic Azad University-Abadan Branch in the second semester of the 1388-89 academic year. Using Cochran's formula a sample of 234 students (116 females and 118 males) was selected by multistage cluster sampling. The brief version of Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale was used for measuring perfectionism, and the entrepreneurial attitude scale was made by the researchers. The validity and reliability of the questionnaires were estimated by confirmatory factor analysis and Cronbach’s alpha with the acceptable results. The data were analyzed using the Two-Way ANOVA and cluster analysis. The Two Way ANOVA results indicated that the typology of perfectionism (healthy perfectionism, unhealthy perfectionism and normal perfectionism) had a significant effect, and gender had no significant effect on the attitude toward entrepreneurship. The results of Tukey test also showed that healthy perfectionism students had a better attitude toward entrepreneurship than other students. The results of this study can be used in teaching entrepreneurship and academic counseling.
