Efforts to improve ethics education of accounting students have increased, but the impact of college ethics courses on attitudes towards business ethics of accounting students have not been determined. The purpose of this research is to measure and compare the business ethics attitudes of accounting students who have taken ethics courses, with other junior and senior business students who have not taken similar courses. Measuring the differences in responses of accounting students and other business students indicate incremental learning from prior ethics courses. Data are collected using the Attitudes Towards Business Ethics Questionnaire (ATBEQ).
