Entrepreneurial Orientations and Motivations among Male and Female Students in the Egyptian universities: an Empirical Comparative Study

Auther : Amr A. Zedan

This exploratory study examines the gender-based entrepreneurial differences among Egyptian universities male and female students. Using a sample of 2331 undergraduate students, the researcher tried to test 6 hypotheses. Using one-way ANOVA and t-test, the research results identified that there are many more differences between male and female students (potential entrepreneurs) than there are similarities, which is in contradiction with western based studies. Results indicate that there are significant differences between male and female students in the following areas: the entrepreneurial motivations, the probability of business start-up, the readiness to start-up business after graduation, the preferred business sectors, their perceptions towards the nature of entrepreneurs personality, and their perception of the negative behaviors of the Egyptian entrepreneurs. On the other hand, there are insignificant differences between the two groups in the following areas: the entrepreneurial orientations, their perceptions of the factors affecting the preparation of the entrepreneurs, and their perception of the positive behaviors of the Egyptian entrepreneurs. The research results support the rational that the constructs, theories and approaches which-actually-postulated in the developed countries, must be examined in the developing countries and the emergent economies.
