Abstract

The possibility of infusing entrepreneurship into higher education has incited much enthusiasm globally. A sub-domain of entrepreneurial education lies within the scope of social development and recognized as social academic entrepreneurship (SAE) education. Analysis of SAE intention at HEIs is scarce in Pakistan, and this pioneer study systematically analyzes key tenants of SAE including institutional factors, role of faculty and leadership, and strategic inclination to sustain SAE ecosystem within the faculties of social sciences and humanities at a liberal art university in Pakistan. The questionnaire is built on Hindle bridge framework and quadruple helix model for innovation. Results indicate that the study sample is at risk of exhibiting effective SAE and outlines strategies for mindfully curating a trajectory towards SAE education.

Academic entrepreneurship relies on intentional identification and exploitation of profitable opportunities in the industry by carefully studying the market trends, demands and gaps within existing and anticipated practices for larger societal benefits (Balven, Fenters, Siegel, & Waldman, 2018).
