A Measure of Adaptive Cognition of Entrepreneurship Students for Sensing the Environment's Uncertainty A Study in An African University

Abstract:

bridge the gap that has arisen between the number of graduates and employment opportunities

available in the job market. Since the entrepreneurs' entrepreneurial mindset is different from

others in the process of creating value and appropriation of rewards, the purpose of this study is

to understand the readiness of the mindset of entrepreneurship students for sensing the

uncertainty in the environment for venturing into entrepreneurship opportunities in the market.

Hence, this metacognition research founded on a positivist approach quantitatively assesses the

cognitive adaptability of a sample of 196 students at an African university.

The study's findings reflect that the metacognitive adaptability of the students had not been

developed similar to the entrepreneurs. Hence, it is recommended to redesign the pedagogies of

entrepreneurial education so that the university's entrepreneurial students would be dynamic,

flexible, and self-regulating to sense the uncertainty in the environment. However, the results are

subject to the study's limitation that the self-administered questionnaire may inflate or deflate

variables even though several ex-ante and ex-post approaches would be used to minimize

common method bias.
