ABSTRACT
This article presents a social cognitive model that identifies, defines and relates key comprehensive factors that impact on business ethical standards and conduct across cultures. In particular, national cultures serve as the social foundation for generating and shaping in a triadically interacting manner institutional, organizational, and personal factors. The model predicts that these three antecedent factors combine to influence the perceptions of business ethical standards uniquely in each culture. The model also predicts that the consequences of the resulting ethical or unethical behaviors feed back to modify the subsequent ethical standards and conduct Examples and implications of this social cognitive model are provided throughout.
