ABSTRACT. As part of an ongoing research endeavor aimed at examining the entrepreneurial attitudes and intentions of students from around the globe, the current study extends previous research by examining the degree to which nationality is associated with entrepreneurial attitudes in students from China and Brazil. Hypotheses based upon differences in national culture and entrepreneurial infrastructure were posited and examined. Findings indicated that Chinese students possessed significantly stronger attitudes toward innovation in business and perceived self control; however Brazilian students had significantly stronger perceived self-esteem related to business. No significant differences were found with regard to future entrepreneurial intentions. pp. 56-70
