The Relationship Between Entrepreneurship and the Social Sciences

The study of the entrepreneurship field is influenced and influenced by a broad range of disciplines including sociology (influence and norms) and psychology, anthropology as well as history, culture and law. The wide array of disciplines shows that entrepreneurship can be described as an actual phenomenon and a process.

The concept of entrepreneurship is elusive and this ambiguity has been evident in the definitions researchers have created for it. Many have embraced Schumpeterian dynamic views of entrepreneurship that define it as an individual’s ability to discover new opportunities and develop new companies. Others have emphasized the value of entrepreneurial activities in larger organizations or communities. Others have limited the definition to small business owners and self-employed individuals who run their own businesses.

Whatever definition one chooses to endorse, it is widely recognized that entrepreneurship is vital to the growth of our economy and well-being. It has been linked with job creation, productivity gains and economic growth. Moreover social entrepreneurs are significant people in society because they come up with solutions to society’s problems.

In the wake of this, there is growing interest in incorporating social entrepreneurship into education in entrepreneurship, and several researchers have begun to study this idea. However there is a shortage of empirical research about the impact of social entrepreneurship on higher education and an urgent need to better know what students learn from this kind of course. This article addresses this issue with a case-study of the students’ experiences taking a course in Social Enterprise at an University in Pakistan.
