The Relationship Between Entrepreneurship and the Social Sciences

A wide range of disciplines contribute to the study of entrepreneurship including economics (incentives, markets) as well as management (opportunity and process) and sociology (influence norms, influence), psychology (motivation, biases) and anthrology (history, culture) and law. This wide range of disciplines demonstrates that entrepreneurship is a phenomenon and an activity.

The concept of entrepreneurship has been a bit hazy and this uncertainty can be apparent in the definitions experts have offered. Many have adopted the Schumpeterian dynamic view of entrepreneurship, which defines it as the capacity to capitalize on opportunities and launch new ventures. Others have stressed the importance of entrepreneurial activity within larger communities or organizations. Others have limited the definition to small business owners and self-employed individuals who operate their own businesses.

No matter what definition one decides to accept, there is a consensus that entrepreneurship is critical to the growth of our economy and well-being. This is because it has been associated with job creation, productivity gains and economic growth. Moreover social entrepreneurs are significant individuals in the society, as they introduce solutions to societal problems.

This has led to is an increasing interest in incorporating social entrepreneurship into the entrepreneurship education and a number of researchers are beginning to research this concept. However there is a shortage of research that has a direct bearing on the impact of social entrepreneurship on higher education, and a need to better know what students learn from this type of course. This article addresses this issue through an analysis of students‘ learning experiences in a social entrepreneurship course offered at the University in Pakistan.
