Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between behave ethically in decision making and gender in the context of Chinese culture. Using Reidenbach and Robin's1 measurements of the ethical dimensions of justice in business school students from China, we found a significant correlation between gender and the ethical behavioral intentions of respondents. Females rely on both utilitarianism and high power distance in making moral decisions. In contrast, when males face the same moral issues, they rely on uncertainty avoidance. In addition, Female's behavioral intention is related to the certain situation and is significantly influenced by Chinese culture (Confucius and Buddhism), while male's decision-making is more common and irrelevant to national cultural dimensions.
