Ethics is part of the continuing assessment efforts at most schools, and has been a part of business and accounting education accreditation standards for quite some time. One means of improving ethics education is to better understand the ethical views of our students. The purpose of this survey study is to better understand the views of accounting students regarding several aspects of ethics and the perceived ethical standards of various groups. In addition to their attitudes towards ethics, we are also interested in determining some of the stronger influences in students’ lives related to ethics and ethics education.
