Accessing and learning the fundamental ethical values is required in the acquisition of professionalism, in all branches of activity and in particular in education and research-development, but also in the field of health care, public administration, law, public communication, politics etc. In our analysis, we hypothesize that the meaning of ethical constructs derived from secular moral theories – including professional deontology – are correlated with the concept of obligation, ans also that, when there is a conflict of values between personal and social-professional values, it is solved by blurring the professional values that contrast with the personal ones. The paper is based on a quantitative empirical research based on a questionnaire, applied in the N-E Region of Romania (in the counties of Iasi, Suceava, Botosani, Neamt), on a number of 661 people. We found that family is the main source of information on ethical values. This fact, together with the role of the Church in shaping ethical values, outlines the rather traditional and religious based character of the Romanian ethical axiology. The fact only few respondents indicated the workplace as a source of information on ethical values confirms that the ethical values adhered to by the residents of Northeastern Romania are rather personal and social in nature, than professional. School, through ethical education, has an important function in passing on ethical values, so a curriculum that includes ethics courses in all profiles, both in higher and pre-university education, including primary education, could lead to shaping ethical competences of young generations.
