Hofstede’s cultural dimensions are used to analyze the Corruption Perception Index of 47 countries. Using a linear regression model with the CPI as the dependent variable and culture as the independent variables, 65% of the perceptions of corruption is explained by four of Hofstede's cultural dimensions. Each dimension is significant at the < .05 level. The results have potential important implications for global strategic management, foreign investment, marketing, and internal and external auditing.
