AbstractThe authors discuss the pressures that accounting educators face in meeting expectations to include ethics in the accounting curriculum. Most schools still do not require discrete ethics courses for accounting students; ethics coverage is on a course-by-course basis. However, not all professors are equally comfortable or knowledgeable of models of ethics. To aid professors in that position, the authors present illustrative material that can serve as a starting point for discussion of professional ethics.
