State-of-the-Art Theories and Empirical Evidence pp 129-149; doi:10.1007/978-981-10-6926-0_8

Abstract: This paper serves to obtain the level of tolerance towards corporate crime activities in the perception of accounting professionals in Malaysia. The study focuses on the Islamic religious, educational background and their relationship with the level of acceptance/tolerance by these professionals towards corporate misbehaviours. For that purpose, this paper first deliberates the teachings of Islamic ethics in the Islamic religious education. Then, the study investigates the Islamic religious education received by Muslim professionals and its relationship with their corporate crime acceptance level. The study further proposes religious education as a possible mechanism to improve acceptance level towards corporate crime. There are two types of religious educations: firstly, whether the professional attended religious classes (informal) and secondly, whether they received formal religious education. The results indicate that formal religious, educational background is found to be significantly correlated with lower acceptance level to corporate crime.
Keywords: Corporate crime / Formal religious education / Accounting professionals
