Abstract

This study is an examination of student responses to moral and ethical statements. One hundred and eighty-two undergraduate students were surveyed with the intent to discover any differences on moral sensibilities between commerce and non-commerce students. The study is prefaced by a brief introduction to the issues, as raised by moral philosophy and business theory. The analysis probes issues of moral perception of society and issues of moral choice. The findings suggest a slightly greater propensity of commerce students to be more sceptical of the image of a moral society and a slightly greater propensity to take "moral risks" in comparisons to non-commerce students.
