Abstract: This paper assessed the knowledge structures underlying accounting representations, rarely investigated in accounting by examining the perceptions of master and last year accounting students from an ex-communist country relative to the ethics of short-term earnings management. In this respect a survey was conducted during one month period in one of the largest public universities in Romania. The results document a differentiate acceptance of the types of earnings management (e.g. accrual-based versus real earnings management). Overall Romanian students seems to accept as less ethical the accrual-based earnings management and to have a high moral development and understanding of the consequences of such manipulative practices. Limits of the paper are presented and also the scope for future research
