Only 1034 graduates ventured into business, out of over 180,000 who graduated last year.
Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin said special attention would be given to the business sector to pull in more graduates.
Graduates should change their mindset to be generators of job seekers instead of a job seeker.
"The nation needs more entrepreneurs from among the graduates of higher institutions of learning to be catalysts in transforming the country's economy to a high-income one hinged on innovaiton," he said.
On the other hand, 75 per cent of graduates secured jobs six months after they completed studies last year.
