ANTONITES, A.J.  y  NONYANE-MATHEBULA, B.T.. Engineers as entrepreneurs: entrepreneurial orientation of engineers in South Africa. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.1, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1012-277X.

A positive relationship between economic growth and entrepreneurship has been widely established. The entrepreneur is the key player in the entrepreneurial venturing process. This paper primarily focuses on understanding the behavioural phenomenon of entrepreneurial orientation (EO), specifically that of engineers in the South African context. The assumed EO of entrepreneurial engineers was expected to be higher than that of non-entrepreneurial engineers; and this study found this to be true of some aspects of EO. Factor analysis results supported the view that the EO construct is unidimensional. A secondary situational analysis highlighted the lack of entrepreneurial education in South Africa.
