This study is about the inclusion of values, as suggested by Business Studies stakeholders, into the form six (equivalent to Cambridge A-Level) curriculum. The need for inclusion of values in the curriculum would place responsibilities on teachers to convey these values to students. As such, teachers‟ opinions of the inclusion of values into the curriculum are also sought. To obtain the necessary data of the type of values to be incorporated into a business curriculum, a mixed mode methodology was chosen and the method used was the developmental research approach (DRA). A sample size of 51 stakeholders was interviewed and 14 experts were asked to verify the values obtained. The values were further evaluated by a random sample of 423 Business Studies teachers. 21 values were accepted. The values are incorporated into the Malaysian Futuristic Business Studies curriculum for teachers to teach business cum values. It is hoped that the curriculum will produce business graduates with high moral values.
