The Relationship Between Entrepreneurship and the Social Sciences

The study of entrepreneurialism is influenced by a broad range of disciplines including sociology (influence and norms) and psychology, anthropology and history, culture and law. The diversity of these 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 scholars have developed for it. Many have adopted Schumpeterian innovative views of entrepreneurship that define it as an individual’s ability to take advantage of new opportunities and develop new enterprises. Others have stressed the importance of entrepreneurial activities within larger communities or organizations. Others have limited the definition of entrepreneurship to small business owners and self-employed individuals who run their own businesses.

Whatever definition you choose it is widely acknowledged that entrepreneurship is crucial for economic development and wellbeing, as it is associated with the creation of jobs and productivity increases. It also aids in economic growth. In addition social entrepreneurs are crucial people in society because they offer solutions to social problems.

There is a growing interest in incorporating this idea into the entrepreneurship education. Researchers have begun to study the idea. There is a lack of research that is empirically based on social entrepreneurial activities and higher education, and it’s crucial to understand what students learn through this type of course. This article addresses this issue by providing an investigation of students’ experiences in a course on Social Enterprise at an University in Pakistan.
