The Importance of Ethical Training for the Improvement of Ethical Decision-Making: Evidence from Germany and the United States
Rottig, Daniel; Heischmidt, Kenneth A.
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v18 n4 p5-35 2007
Based on three independent samples from Germany and the United States, this exploratory, cross-cultural study examines empirically the importance of ethical training for the improvement of ethical decision-making. The results of the study reveal a significant difference in the use of corporate codes of conduct and ethical training, as well as ethical decision-making between German and US business practitioners, and provide empirical evidence for the significant and positive impact of ethical training on practitioners' ethical decision-making across cultures. Implications of our results for teaching in international business are discussed. (Contains 10 tables.)
