Social Entrepreneurship in the UAE: An Exploration of Undergraduates' Attitudes, Motivations and Intentions
Keywords:social entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education, mindset, impact, social innovation, undergraduates
This exploratory study examines the attitudes towards social entrepreneurship amongst a group of students in an early cohort mandated by the government to undertake entrepreneurship education. As such, the study collects responses from students across a range of disciplines, focusing on their interpretation of the impact and importance of the education they have received and how it relates to (and motivates) them to pursue entrepreneurship, and social entrepreneurship in particular, themselves. As a ‘first step’, this initial study highlights areas which should be examined in detail through qualitative methods and suggests early indications for elements which would be useful in a framework to support policy and community interest in social entrepreneurship endeavours.
