Moreover, the education at higher education is expected to deliver students with noble morality and character. To realize this expectation, any departments in each faculty, especially within University of Brawijaya Malang, are required to provide a specific course to create ethic and moral behavior among students. One such course is Business and Profession Ethic Course. Some students, however, may still commit unethical action even after given this course. The objective of this research is to understand the phenomenon of a process of teaching and learning Business and Profession Ethic Course.
