Bhutanese and Canadian business student attitudes to entrepreneurship: implications for education and learning
by Ron Mulholland
International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 12, No. 4, 2012

Abstract: This study compares attitudes to entrepreneurship of university business students in the newly democratised Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan to those in Canada. Bhutan is a country in transition from a subsistence agricultural economy to a modern service and trading economy. Entrepreneurship is identified as having a key role in economic development. The government has slowly begun to institute programmes and supportive infrastructure. Results indicate that although there is entrepreneurship potential equivalent to that in Canada, current Bhutanese business students do not often consider this route. Entrepreneurial education and learning are reviewed. Recommendations and future research directions are indicated.
