dc.description.abstract <p>This paper reports the results of a study that examined the impact of a culture-based entrepreneurship study abroad program on interest in business ownership. Forty-three students were asked to complete a pre and post program questionnaire that asked about their understanding of a variety of program activities and to gauge their interest in starting a business. Almost no similar research has been reported in the literature. Pre- and postprogram mean rankings of the variables are reported The results indicated that post-program mean rankings tend to be higher than pre-program mean rankings. Twelve of the post-program mean values are significantly different from pre-program mean values. Logit regression analysis indicated that the culture variable was positively associated with interest in starting a business while the Spanish business and entrepreneurial skills, and program structure variables were negatively associated with business ownership. The results of this study may be of interest to educators involved in developing entrepreneurship and study abroad courses and programs. The study may be of special interest to those involved in developing integrative entrepreneurship programs.</p>
