The study is intended to identify endogenous factors, including economic, that influence opportunism of Russian students. Not much research on the topic has been done worldwide over last years, so studying reasons for opportunism represents a broad research field and is of a great importance for economic theory overall. Probability of hitting one of the categories ranked by the degree of opportunism is estimated using a combination of latent class model and binomial logit model on the basis of survey of Saint Petersburg HSE students. The author reveals connection of student opportunism with motivation, propensity for group work and procrastination, students’ expectations of the cheaters’ share, financial dependence on parents and income level.
