Recent corporate scandals have led to renewed calls for ethics education for the accounting profession. Academic institutions employ variety of teaching methods and place a substantial level of emphasis when teaching ethics to accounting students. We report on a questionnaire survey of accounting faculty members at Bahraini universities to investigate the perceptions on the issue of incorporating ethics into accounting curriculum. Our survey results on faculty members show that ethics should be taught to accounting students as an extremely important topic. Respondents are considering the development of abilities needed to deal with ethical dilemmas as highly significant issue. Offering ethics as integrated with other accounting courses is the most popular option. Most faculty members expressed an interest in teaching ethics.
