AbstractThe study examines whether accounting students' perceptions of business ethics and the goals of accounting ethics education are fundamentally different from the perceptions of accounting faculty members. The study used a survey instrument to elicit student and faculty responses to various questions concerning the importance of business ethics and accounting ethics education. The authors found that students consider both business ethics and the goals of accounting ethics education to be more important than faculty members. Implications of these results for accounting faculty members interested in accounting ethics education are discussed.
