Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Assessing decision-making styles of business students is crucial, particularly in China, because the government increasingly encourages business graduates to establish their own businesses as startups. The authors’ aim was to employ both the Melbourne Decision Making Questionnaire and General Decision-Making Style measure to investigate whether differences exist in terms of decision-making styles between students with and without business experience, and whether gender is a moderating factor. The findings will assist in curriculum reform of business education in Chinese universities. More attention should be paid to training students’ decision-making styles, especially the rational style for students without business experience.
