Abstract

This study examined the similarities and differences in the attitudes of business majors and nonbusiness majors toward business, consumerism, and government in Saudi Arabia. Drawing on the unique culture of Saudi Arabia and the potential influence of business education, we developed three hypotheses. An examination of a sample of 134 respondents revealed that business majors were more favorably predisposed toward a number of business aspects and consumerism than were people who had not majaored in business. Also, both groups were equally and positively inclined toward consumer-related government regulations and price controls.
