The objective of this article is to study the influence of the age on the entrepreneurial intention of the Moroccan executives-engineers. The results stemming from analyses of hierarchical regressions realized on a sample of 376 executives-engineers show that the entrepreneurial intention decreases with the increase of the age. The results also show the moderating role of the age between the entrepreneurial intention and its antecedents (Attitude to the behavior and the perceived control). Indeed, it emerges from our study that the entrepreneurial intention is more guided by the "attitude toward behavior" for the young employees than at the seniors, whereas the entrepreneurial intention is more guided by the "perceived control" for the seniors than at the young employees. The theoretical and managerial implications of this research will be presented, and avenues of research will be proposed.
