ABSTRACT
Undergraduate students (N=434) at multiple U.S. and Chinese universities completed the Entrepreneurial Attitudes Orientation (EAO) survey. Results indicated that scores on all four of the entrepreneurial attitudes were found to vary significantly as a function of students' country of origin; however, contrary to anticipated the strongest attitudes were not all found among U.S. students. In addition, U.S. students were found to have greater previous exposure to entrepreneurial activities; specifically they were more likely to have both worked for a small business in the past and to have a small family business.
