Ethical Commitment in Higher Education: A Cross-Country Comparison
AbstractThis study examines the impact of ethical commitment generic competence in higher education and culture. We used an ad-hoc questionnaire to evaluate the responses of graduate-level business students in Romania and Spain when they are asked about their self-assessment, the importance of the competence for working in their profession in the labour market and the role of University in improving their assessment in this competence, as well as 10 items from the National Culture Survey to determine the extent of the association between five cultural dimensions and ethical commitment in Romania and Spain. Research suggests that Spanish and Romanian students' perceptions of their self-assessment are significantly higher than their perceptions of the role of the university. We conclude that we should promote the role of universities in improving their assessment.
