Analyzing the way in which undergraduate ethics is taught to accounting majors is pertinent today because professional organizations, CPAs, public and private corporations, and educational institutions are all trying to determine the best way to prepare accountants to make the honorable choice when faced with an ethical dilemma. The presentation of this Honors thesis will focus on how well SUNY Brockport accounting students feel they are prepared for future ethical dilemmas and the manner in which ethics should be taught to undergraduate accountants. Survey data from eight years of accounting graduates is utilized to determine how ethically-prepared students felt upon graduation and, from their perspective, the best way to instill accounting ethics.
