In small businesses, management skills, entrepreneurial orientation, social responsibility and closely related issues are very important. In this paper, the results of a study of the relationship between management skills, social responsibility and entrepreneurial orientation of small Mexican entrepreneurs are presented. The study was carried out using quantitative methods and included the design of a survey applied to 140 small entrepreneurs in the central region of Mexico. Findings reveal that there is a positive and significant relationship between these three variables, considering the mediation of demographic variables. A model evaluated through regression analysis models is also presented, which proves to be significant and explains these relationships in all their dimensions.
