Abstract
The purpose of the present study is to compare the profiles of perceived self-efficacy in teamwork and entrepreneurship between Engineering and Social Sciences university students. The total sample consists of 1,181 participants; 592 from the Engineering field and 589 from the Social Sciences programs, with an average age of 18.43 years (SD = 0.95) and 18.38 years (SD = 0.86) respectively. A quantitative approach with a descriptive and transversal survey design was used. All the participants completed the Self-efficacy Teamwork and Entrepreneurship Scale. The results of the one-way multivariate analysis of variance, followed by the one-way univariate analysis of variance, showed that the Social Sciences students reported statistically significant (p < .05)better perceived self-efficacy, desired self-efficacy and reachable self-efficacy in teamwork than the Engineering participants. Regarding the entrepreneurship factor, the Social Sciences students reported statistically significant greater desired and reachable self-efficacy than their Engineering counterparts (p < .05). However, for all the other variables, statistically significant differences were not found (p> .05).
