The aim of this paper is to determine whether there were differences in management students’ perceptions of the ethical values of managers in Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Design/methodology/approach: The study adopted a field survey as the most appropriate research design for the investigation of the issues of interest. The survey study was conducted among students from 17 to 25, male and female 130 undergraduate students from the management departments of a private university in Bosnia and Herzegovina and 130 undergraduate students of a public university in Turkey, also the students from the management department. Students who are participants of this study are likely to be the prospective managers and professional practitioners of their fields in the future. The form was designed to collect the respondents’ basic information age, sex, field and nationality; ethical perceptions on five moral construct: justice, relativism, utilitarianism, deontology and egoism. In answering the questions, the respondents were asked to rate each given statement on a 5-point scale from – definitely believe that it is unethical (1) to definitely believe that this is ethical (5) on a 5-point Likert scale. The study limitations consisted in terms of specific context, limited number of sample, thus limiting the generalisability of the results to the wider student population. Further research is recommended to overcome these limitations by repeating the study in other contexts, subjects and methods and to expand current research to other issues. The results of the study can be the useful resource for future research and lead the higher educational institutions to increase courses related to the ethics in the teaching programs and curriculums. Keywords: ethic values, students, university, managers
