The regression model used in this study is a multiple linear regression model with the support of SPSS. The results found that partially the pressure, opportunity, rationalization andcapability variables had a positive and significant influence on the academic cheating behaviour of the students of the Faculty of Economics and Business of Universitas Warmadewa. This is indicated by the significance value of the variables, each of which is pressure with a value of 0.003, opportunity with a value of 0.005, rationalization with a value of 0.010 andcapability with a value of 0.007.
