TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION: Social entrepreneurship gives students skills and something to believe in

Press/Media: Expert comment

Description

Student entrepreneurship is being encouraged by governments, universities and students worldwide as high-growth entrepreneurial ventures generate money for economies, universities and the founding individuals themselves.

However, students are also at the forefront of a heartening rise of social entrepreneurship across the world in response to societal problems. Discontent with political inaction, austerity measures and government funding cuts is on the rise, while students’ aspirations to change the world for the better are now often as important to them as earning a high salary.
