AbstractThe effects of gender and culture on MBA students' sell-reported cheating behavior were examined. Data collected from MBA students from the U.S. and India suggest U.S. males are more likely to cheat than U.S. females, with Indian males and females reporting similar cheating behaviors. The results also reveal key differences in cheating behavior between collectivist cultures like India and individualistic cultures like the U.S. The authors end by discussing the implications of these findings for the classroom.
