This research study sought to identify differences in ethical decision making between individuals with a liberal arts educational background and a business educational background. The study surveyed undergraduate degree students from liberal arts and business school programs. The Defining Issues Test, Version 2 (DIT-2) was given to respondents to identify differences of the DIT-2 results among the study participants consisting of undergraduate seniors. The research results yielded significantly higher mean postcoventional moral judgment scores by the liberal arts majors compared to the business majors.
