The relationship between mindfulness and social entrepreneurial intention with perceived behavioral control as mediator
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MINDFULNESS AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURIAL INTENTION WITH PERCEIVED BEHAVIORAL CONTROL AS MEDIATOR
Nowadays, governments face a conflict between economic development and addressing social needs, especially in developing countries. Social enterprises have been shown to help them solve this problem. However, universities, which have educated social entrepreneurs, are focusing their attention on corporate social responsibility, while the research on social entrepreneurship has yet to receive adequate attention. The purpose of this study is to find out the relationship between mindfulness and social entrepreneurialintention and the intermediary role of perceived controllability and self-efficacy for giving ideas to universities to make appropriate policies for the development of new social entrepreneur generations. This study used structural equation modelling (SEM) to test the research hypotheses. There were 294 students at all levels (bachelor, master or,PhD) of universities in southern Vietnam who participated in this study. The data was collected between August 2019 and October 2019 by using questionnaires. The results have shown that there is a positive relationship between mindfulness and social entrepreneurialintention(SEI). Besides, students’ perceived controllability and self-efficacy can enhance this relationship, especially self-efficacy.
