AN EXAMINATION OF CULTURAL DIFFERENCES IN ETHICAL DECISION MAKING USING the MULTIDIMENSIONAL ETHICS SCALE
Abstract:The Multidimensional Ethics Scale (Reidenbach & Robin, 1988, 1990) was applied to accounting-specific scenarios to measure students' ethical decision-making attitudes towards accounting ethics. Accounting students in the US and Taiwan were taken as research subjects. A total of 201 US students and 396 Taiwanese students were analyzed. US students made ethical decisions significantly based on justice and egoism dimensions, while Taiwanese students focused on justice and deontology dimensions.
