In this study, we aimed to explore the relationship between religiosity and business ethics. Two dimensions of religiosity – intrinsic an extrinsic- were studied. We tested mainly one hypothesis: whether ethical attitudes are affected by religiosity. However, we also explored the relationships between ethical attitudes, intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity and various demographic measures of the participants such as age, sex, and nationality. In our study, we surveyed students at two different universities -- one is in Turkey and the other is in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Our sample consisted of first year university students. Our survey instruments have three parts. First part included 24-vignette ethics scale of Barnett and Brown (1994). Second part included 15-item religiosity scale of Allport and Ross (1967) -- adopted version of it by Vitell et al. (2007). Third part contained various demographic measures such as age, sex, and nationality.
