Title: ” The Impact of culture on Business Ethics”
Authors: Dr. Randa Ali Hamdy
Keywords: Ethics Culture International Business
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Journal of management Accounting and Insurance, Cairo University
Abstract: Doing business in Egypt, however, is fraught with obstacles. U.S. businesses wishing to enter the Egyptian market need to consider that Egyptian managers view differently many practices that are considered moral and ethical in U.S. culture (Al-Khatib et al., 1995; Rawwas et al., 1994). In this comparative survey of 191 Egyptian we explore the relationship between national culture and ethical decision-making within the context of business. Using Reidenbach and Robin’s (1988) multi-criteria ethics instrument, we examine how differences on two of Hofstede’s national culture dimensions, individualism/collectivism, and power distance, are related to the manner in which business practitioners make ethical decisions.
