- Master Thesis 
This master thesis, as a part of a project on business trainings in Tanzania, investigates the effects of these trainings on change in mindset and soft skills of microentrepreneurs in Dar es Salaam. It focuses on following dimensions: Creativity, Individualism, Locus of Control, Need for Achievement, Dispositional Optimism and Trust/Relationship. The significant differences are found on the number of dimensions. Entrepreneurs who took part in the training have more internal locus of control, are more creative and have greater need for achievement. There are also significant differences in some psychological variables between genders. All dimensions except for individualism show predicted direction of relation between groups with and without training.
