Introduction: This study was conducted to evaluate the association of dimensions of an efficient teacher with entrepreneurial motivation from the viewpoint of students.

Methods: The study population of this research included 110 pharmacy students (above third semester) at Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences, among whom 86 students were selected as the study sample through simple random sampling using Cochrane formula. The effective teacher questionnaire (researcher-made), with Cronbach's alpha of 0.95, and the entrepreneurial motivation scale, with Cronbach's alpha of 0.81, were used to collect the data. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS.21 software using correlation coefficient and simple linear and simultaneous regression analysis.

Results: The results showed a significantly positive correlation between personality traits from among the dimensions of effective teacher and students' entrepreneurial motivation (P<0.01). Other dimensions had a slight impact on students' entrepreneurial motivation.

Conclusion: The personality traits of an effective teacher can significantly explain entrepreneurial motivation. Thus, personality traits are the most essential factors to be used to achieve educational objectives and to inspire entrepreneurial motivation.
