    () (University of Rousse “Angel Kanchev”, Rousse, Bulgaria)


Paper examines some issues of organizational cultural in the business sector entities, public administration and non for profit organizations. Survey is conducted via five dimensional model of Geert Hofstede and the four descriptions of organizational culture made by Tromenaars – Turnrer. There is one assumption razed for further exploration, based on the cultural background the examined non governmental organizations seems to be more enterpreneurship orientated compared the representatives of the other sectors.
