Aims: This study aims to analyze the impact of entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurship curriculum on entrepreneurial intention among students, moderated by entrepreneurial mindset in Vocational High Schools.

Study Design:  This research employs a quantitative research design.

Place and Duration of Study: The study was conducted among students of the Center of Excellence Vocational High School in Banyuwangi, with a population of 7249 students (N). The sample size was determined using a Sample Size Calculator, resulting in a sample of 365 participants.

Methodology: The research instrument utilized in this study was a questionnaire employing a Likert scale. Data analysis was conducted using the Partial Least Squares (PLS) technique implemented through SmartPLS version 3.

Results: Entrepreneurship education provides practical knowledge and shapes students' entrepreneurial mindsets, whereas the Entrepreneurship Curriculum offers theoretical foundations and stimulates entrepreneurial enthusiasm. Although the Entrepreneurial Mindset does not moderate the impact of Entrepreneurship Education, it moderates the effect of the Entrepreneurship Curriculum, highlighting the need to align the Curriculum with the development of an entrepreneurial mindset. These findings serve as a basis for improving entrepreneurial education strategies at the vocational high school level.

Conclusion: This study concludes that Entrepreneurship Education, Entrepreneurship Curriculum, and Entrepreneurial Mindset positively contribute to Entrepreneurial Intention among outstanding Vocational High School students in Banyuwangi. These findings illustrate the moderating role of the Entrepreneurial Mindset in mitigating the negative impact of the Curriculum on students' entrepreneurial intention.

Keywords: Entrepreneurship, curriculum, entrepreneurial intentions, entrepreneurial mindset
