The Relationship Between Entrepreneurship and the Social Sciences

The study of the concept of entrepreneurship is influenced by diverse array of disciplines, including sociology (influence and norms) and psychology, anthropology, history, culture, and law. This broad range of disciplines shows that entrepreneurship is an event and a practice.

The concept of entrepreneurship isn’t clear and this ambiguity is evident in the definitions researchers have come up with for it. Many have adopted Schumpeterian innovative views of entrepreneurship which describe it as the ability of an individual to identify new opportunities and to create new companies. Others have highlighted the importance of entrepreneurial activities within larger organizations or communities. Still others have confined the definition of entrepreneurship to small business owners and self-employed individuals who operate independent businesses.

No matter what definition one decides to accept, it is widely recognized that entrepreneurship is essential for economic development and well-being. It is associated with the creation of jobs, productivity gains, and economic growth. Social entrepreneurs are also vital social actors, as they provide solutions to social issues.

As a result, there is a growing interest to incorporate the concept of social entrepreneurship in entrepreneurship education and several researchers have begun to study this idea. There is a dearth of research that is empirically based on social entrepreneurship and higher education and it’s important to understand what students are learning through this type of course. This article addresses this gap with a case study of the students’ learning experience in a social entrepreneurship course taught at a University in Pakistan.
