Abstract: The promotion of entrepreneurial skills is increasingly important for economic development for this reason universities around the world find themselves in a paradigm shift towards promoting entrepreneurship. In the case of Mexico, the role the university plays in the development of the skills needed to create businesses is still unclear having various strategies that favor the future intent to create businesses and entrepreneurial skills. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the future intention and skills to create business this through a pre-experimental study with a sample of 153 students from a university in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. The results suggest that the strategies implemented by the university to promote entrepreneurship have favored the intention of the students to create business in the future but have not fostered the development of entrepreneurial skills.
