Attitudes of future managers towards business ethics: A comparison of Finnish and American business students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The cross-cultural survey presented here examines the attitudes towards business ethics of Finnish and American business students from the Southern states. The findings indicate that the differences between the attitudes of these groups are small and essentially linked to the strength of their position. Both see deliberation on moral issues as part of a business manager’s job and believe that managers should participate in the solving of social problems.Both Finns and Americans make a distinction between acting legally and ethically, and both endorse cultural relativism.
