Abstract: This research paper proposes six factors that may affect the ethical decisions made by accountancy students, who are the future accountants in the working world. The factors investigated are religion, gender, education, likelihood of wrongdoings being detected, severity of punishment, and peer pressure. A survey was carried out on accountancy students in Nanyang Technological University and results showed that religion, gender, likelihood of wrongdoings being detected and peer pressure (positive and negative) significantly influenced the ethical decisions made by respondents.
