Abstract: The objective of this study was to analyze the psychometric properties of the Social Entrepreneurial Antecedents Scale (SEAS) with male and female university students in Mexico. There were 1,619 students from the University of Guadalajara and the Michoacan University of San Nicolas de Hidalgo who participated in the study. The reliability of SEAS was analyzed with Cronbach's alpha and the validity with confirmatory factor analysis using the maximum likelihood estimation method. Three factorial models of the scale were compared and items were added for its adaptation. The values produced by the factorial analysis show that the adapted Social Entrepreneurial Antecedents Scale presents adequate evidence of validity and reliability for university students in the central-western area of Mexico. It is shown that experience with Social Problems, Empathy, Moral Obligation, Self-Efficacy and Social Support favor the Intention of Social Entrepreneurship. This research provides elements for the identification of profiles of potential social entrepreneurs who can influence the development of populations with emerging economies, involving higher education institutions, government, business and society.
