Abstract [en]

In our economic era, the youth unemployment is a considerable issue. The labour market isblocked and it is a challenge for young people to find a stable job, especially in specificfields as social sciences or humanity studies. After graduating, the job seeking can take fewweeks even few months. Thus, entrepreneurship appears as a solution for those younggraduates who do not find a job or as a future career. Historically speaking, entrepreneurshipwas defined as an economic phenomenon but is seen as a broader concept today. Throughdecades, notions as opportunity, risk-taking and creativity have been added to the definitionbut also the different forms of entrepreneurship as social, societal, ecological or educational.Everyone can be an entrepreneur in his own way and young people are seduced by thisconcept that brings independence and freedom. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate onthe way young graduates who decided to turn themselves into entrepreneurship experiencetheir engagement in this field. To answer the research question, the abductive method hasbeen used. The thesis’ authors interviewed six young graduates who are engaged in variousprojects in order to collect the different experiences and relate them with the differentconcepts of entrepreneurship. After gathering the empirical data and analysed it with diversetheories, a conclusion has been drawn. It showed that there is no common way ofexperiencing entrepreneurship and that personality can have a valuable role concerning thedecision-making. In the following manuscript, theories and interviews have been collectedto reflect on engagement that can be taken by young graduates.
