Abstract      Doing business in Egypt, however, is fraught with obstacles. U.S.
              businesses wishing to enter the Egyptian market need to consider
              that Egyptian managers view differently many practices
              that are considered moral and ethical in U.S. culture
                                                             (Al-Khatib et al., 1995; Rawwas et a
              In this comparative survey of 191 Egyptian we explore the
              relationship between national culture and ethical decision-making
              within the context of business. Using Reidenbach and Robin’s
              (1988) multi-criteria ethics instrument, we examine how
              differences on two of Hofstede’s national culture dimensions,
              individualism/collectivism, and power distance, are related to the
              manner in which business practitioners make ethical decisions.
