Abstract

A social entrepreneur is a mission-driven individual who uses a set of entrepreneurial behaviours to deliver a social value to the less privileged through an entrepreneurially oriented entity that is financially independent, self-sufficient, or sustainable. Over the past three decades more and more have been written about social entrepreneurship, however research pertaining to student inclination to be ones is scarce. In this respect this paper investigates correlation between external and internal factors and inclination to be social entrepreneurs, using UMK students as a case. Results of the study showed both factors strongly correlated. The implication of the study is very clear, university not only inculcate entrepreneurship, concern toward social and environment but at the same time prepare conducive environment for social entrepreneurship. Sensitivity of environmental factors should be utilised to inculcate this inclination.
