Abstract

The study examines what is the role of autonomy on individual social entrepreneurial intention (EI) for students. Furthermore, it examines the differences between the emerging market setting and developed market to gather an understanding of context differences. Using principal component analysis the study finds that the motivators of EI can be divided into 5 components. Following from that the autonomy variable can be divided into 3 sub components. The results present differences in propensity towards EI in the two country settings along with differences in propensity towards social entrepreneurship. The results are unique as they test EI (and variables from the literature) on social entrepreneurship and in an emerging market context. The role of autonomy as a bridge between education and intention is presented.
