Accounting ethics training is pivotal for future accountants as this has served as a rationale for its inclusion in the curriculumof accounting undergraduates. Different teaching methods which may either be passive or active are adopted in teachingaccounting ethics. Students are not usually required to assess the most effective teaching methods that help them makebetter ethical decisions. This study assesses the students' preferences of teaching methods that aid their ethical decision-making process. The opinions of a cohort comprising 287 final year accounting undergraduates were examined after beingtaught an accounting ethics module using both active and passive teaching strategies. The students are required to ranktheir preferences of the various teaching methods adopted during the ethics instruction. It is observed active teachingstrategies ranked better which implies that the students preferred the active teaching strategies to the passive ones.Educators should therefore ensure that active learning strategies are adopted in teaching ethics because they provide thebest medium for communicating ethical instructions and enhancing ethical decision making. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd.
