Abstract [en]

With the globalization of the world, more people have access to international working environment. Cultural differences bring increasing challenges to entrepreneurs who lead companies in international market. Hence, it is of great importance to study the influences of cultural differences on entrepreneurial leadership in order to improve the effectiveness of leadership. This thesis is based on Chinese and Russian cultures. The research focuses on entrepreneur's cultural background and education and how these two aspects influence entrepreneurial leadership. The authors assume that entrepreneur's cultural background and education are the two main aspects which influences entrepreneurial leadership. The education includes family education and school education. A survey based on questionnaires and on the System View methodology is applied to this research. The result of the survey is analyzed in order to explain the influences of cultural differences on entrepreneurial leadership. Furthermore, two systems, based on Chinese and Russian cultures are built in order to understand the inner-relationship between cultural background, education and entrepreneurial leadership. Moreover, it is found that family education influences entrepreneurial leadership more than school education does. In the end of the thesis, some practical recommendations are given to make contribution to the future research in this field.
