Abstract

The objective of this paper is to compare and contrast the higher education and social enterprise strategies in China, India and the United Kingdom (UK). The methodological approach for this paper uses academic literature and documentary data sources; a number of literature databases have been used, along with several documentary data sources, namely: newspapers, web sources and reports. This research determines that social enterprise has evolved into a global phenomenon. For many years, governments have championed social enterprise as a solution to economic, social, political, cultural and environmental challenges facing many parts of the world. The paper urges that more academic research be undertaken regarding social enterprise. Furthermore, when examining social enterprise as a concept, social scientists should be encouraged to compare and contrast geographical examples.
