The purpose of this study is to investigate the ethics of whistleblowing in Chinese society. A framework is suggested to explain whistleblowing behaviour in terms of the individual's locus of control and subjective judgement regarding the intention of whistleblowing. Hypotheses derived from these speculations are tested with data from Chinese MBA students (n = 254). Statistical analysis largely supports the hypotheses, and the implications of the findings are discussed.
