The Relationship Between Entrepreneurship and the Social Sciences

The study of entrepreneurship is influenced by a diverse array of disciplines, including sociology (influence and norms), 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 reflected in the definitions that researchers have come up with for it. Many have adopted Schumpeterian innovative views of entrepreneurship that define it as an individual’s ability to discover new opportunities and develop new companies. 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 people who run their own businesses.

No matter what definition one chooses to endorse, it is generally accepted that entrepreneurship is critical to economic development and well-being. This is because it has been associated with productivity growth, job creation, and economic growth. Social entrepreneurs are also crucial social actors, as they provide solutions to social problems.

As a result, there is a growing interest in incorporating social entrepreneurship into education in entrepreneurship Researchers have started to explore this concept. There is a dearth of research that has been conducted on the subject of social entrepreneurship and higher education and it is crucial to know the lessons students are taking from this type of course. This article addresses this issue through an analysis of students’ experiences in a course on Social Enterprise at an University in Pakistan.
