The main objective of this thesis is to study an emergent stream of research shedding light on social inclusion through higher entrepreneurial education in different contexts. Entrepreneurship is considered a promoter of social and economic development; however, the relationship between entrepreneurship education and social inclusion is unclear. Therefore, in this thesis we examine the following: social inclusion; the role of entrepreneurship education in universities and formal and informal institutions in determining this environment; and how entrepreneurship education influences social inclusion. At the methodological level, this research employs secondary data, and designs instruments that allow for both quantitative and qualitative research, allowing us to tackle the different objectives and triangulate the results through mixed methods. Finally, based on a review of current literature linking higher entrepreneurial education and social inclusion, the thesis contributes to a field that few have studied but that is one of the central promises of entrepreneurship in emerging countries.
