AEC (ASEAN Economic Community) implemented since January 1, 2016 has opened business opportunities for each member country including Indonesia. In its application AEC makes ASEAN region as a free market where production, distribution and consumption take place freely. Also, AEC makes ASEAN a balanced economic development, high-economic and fully integrated in the global economy. All business opportunities will bring positive perception that will affect someone's entrepreneurial intentions. Based on these thoughts, to measure the influence of the perception on AEC towards emergence of entrepreneurial intentions, this research was held. The research took respondents who are students at the FISIP (Faculty of Social and Political Sciences) UNRI (University of Riau) amounting to 175 people. Sampling technique is nonprobability sampling with purposive sampling methods. Sampling included 7 departments without any batch restrictions. Type of this research is descriptive research using quantitative approaches. Data was collected with a survey method using questionnaires. Then the data is analysed using parametric statistics that is t-test and simple linear regression. Results show that perception of students at FISIP UNRI on AEC in general is fairly good and positive. It can be seen from t-test results where value of μ > 50. Similarly, entrepreneurial intention of students at FISIP UNRI shows quite good results. It is also seen from t-test results where value of μ > 50. The research results also show that perception about AEC is significantly and positively influential towards the entrepreneurial intention of students at FISIP UNRI. It is seen from F-test results and a simple linear regression analysis. The F-test result indicates that F-count (7.227) is greater than the F-table (6.84). Moreover, a simple linear regression analysis test in coefficients table shows same result where significant value of t-count is 0.008 or smaller than 0.05. Thus it can be concluded that the perception about MEA is significantly and positively influential towards the growth of students’ entrepreneurial intentions at FISIP UNRI.
