Abstract

The aim of this exploratory study is to provide an illustration of the Eastern cultural values and work values of female entrepreneurs in Vietnam and to establish the importance they place on work-related managerial skills. The findings show that the female entrepreneurs have strong Eastern cultural values, especially Confucian work dynamism, and these are even stronger than those of a sample taken in Singapore, an Asian 'dragon'. The respondents are also aware of the key managerial skills and work values which are needed to help their businesses succeed.
