Baloglu, Nuri
Educational Research and Reviews, v12 n1 p36-44 Jan 2017
In this study, the effects of family leadership orientation on social entrepreneurship, generativity and academic education success were examined with the views of college students. The study was conducted at a state university in Central Anatolia in Turkey. 402 college students who attending at three different colleges voluntarily participated in this study. Data were collected by the utilization of "Family Leadership Orientation Scale, Social Entrepreneurship Scale, Generativity Scale and Grade Points of Average (GPA) of the students." Data were analyzed by quantitative analysis techniques. The findings showed that college students were pretty under the influence of economic family leadership with 4.52 average score. Social entrepreneurship (3.71), generativity (3.61) and academic achievement (3.03) were evaluated by the students as good level. There were statistically significant differences in terms of gender and academic achievement for economic and social family leadership orientation. The results of regression analyses showed that the family leadership orientation explains 27% of social entrepreneurship; 16% of generativity and 5% of academic achievement. The family leadership perception, which constitutes three dimensions, namely social, cultural and economic, affects the students' social entrepreneurship and this consequently influences their generativity and academic achievement. This theory was verified by means of structured equation model test. Model fit indices were CMIN/df = 1.60; NFI = 0.99; RFI = 0.95; IFI = 0.99; TLI = 0.98; CFI = 0.99 and RMSEA = 0.04. The findings were discussed on the basis of relevant literature.
