Students Today Into Entrepreneurs Tomorrow: The Impact Of Major Choice On Grit And Risk Aversion, Keith D. Larkin 2016 Ursinus College

Students Today Into Entrepreneurs Tomorrow: The Impact Of Major Choice On Grit And Risk Aversion, Keith D. Larkin

Business and Economics Honors Papers

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than half of all start-ups in the US fail before their fifth year in operation (BLS, 2010). As a result, since the mid-1980s, colleges and universities nationwide have continued to increase opportunities and funding to improve entrepreneurial education. Yet, little is known about how the choices students make during their time in college, like major choice, impact personality traits that are beneficial to entrepreneurship. Specifically, these traits are grit and risk aversion. The theoretically successful entrepreneurs are able to be committed to goals and remain motivated despite setbacks. Simultaneously they must maintain ...


Assessing Medication Redistribution Practices Between Long-Term Care Facilities, Free Clinics, And Charitable Pharmacies In Ohio, Kasandra Chambers, Jon R. Austin 2016 Cedarville University

Assessing Medication Redistribution Practices Between Long-Term Care Facilities, Free Clinics, And Charitable Pharmacies In Ohio, Kasandra Chambers, Jon R. Austin

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

Every year, U.S. hospitals and long-term care facilities flush millions of unused medications down the drain, pumping contaminants into America's drinking water. These discarded medications could be expired, spoiled, or simply unused. Patients may leave behind unused medications if they refuse to take them, cannot tolerate them, or pass away. Few of our country's 5,700 hospitals and 45,000 long-term care homes keep data on the pharmaceutical waste they generate. Based on a small sample study, the Associated Press was able to project a national estimate of at least 250 million pounds of pharmaceuticals are wasted ...

How Do Sharing Economy Companies Grow? A Comparison Of Internal And External Growth Patterns Of Airbnb And Uber, Piper Davis 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

How Do Sharing Economy Companies Grow? A Comparison Of Internal And External Growth Patterns Of Airbnb And Uber, Piper Davis

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

When the term “sharing economy” is mentioned in the news and in recent academic papers, Airbnb and Uber are mentioned in the same breath. In 2016, these two firms are arguably the most popular and fastest-growing peer-to-peer companies in the world. This study examines the ways in which the two companies have grown since their founding. Growth is examined both externally (in terms of domestic and international market expansion) and internally (hiring for primary and support functions). Specifically, archived job postings are used to analyze how human capital requirements have changed over time, by both location and function. This research ...

Kickact: The Implementation & Evaluation Of A Youth Empowerment & Leadership Program, Crystal M. Denny 2016 SIT Graduate Institute

Kickact: The Implementation & Evaluation Of A Youth Empowerment & Leadership Program, Crystal M. Denny

Capstone Collection

KickAct is a program that combines martial arts and performing arts to empower youth and engage them in creative social change. Youth experience a lack of community engagement and partnership with the adult. Many youth face additional challenges, ranging from lack of support in school to violence at home, that can negatively impact their life. KickAct is designed to provide youth with the necessary skills and experience to thrive as active participants in their communities. Due to inconsistent attendance and participation, it was not possible to determine whether the workshop format was a successful method for youth empowerment. However, the ...

Is More Always Better? Risk Trade-Offs Among Internationalizing New Ventures, Stephanie Fernhaber, Patricia McDougall-Covin 2016 Butler University

Is More Always Better? Risk Trade-Offs Among Internationalizing New Ventures, Stephanie Fernhaber, Patricia Mcdougall-Covin

Stephanie A. Fernhaber

Purpose
– The purpose of this paper is to investigate how ventures manage the negative returns associated with higher levels of internationalization. Many new ventures are internationalizing to fully exploit new innovations and/or gain access to larger markets. Yet at some point the rising costs associated with internationalization outweigh any benefits, resulting in an inverted U-shaped relationship between internationalization and performance.
Design/methodology/approach
– New ventures are theorized to better manage high levels of internationalization by limiting exposure to other sources of risk. This can be achieved by leveraging greater size and/or limiting simultaneous diversification efforts on product innovation ...

Commercial Bank Small Business Lending Pre And Post Crisis, Kevin T. Jacques, Richard Moylan, Peter J. Nigro 2016 Baldwin Wallace University

Commercial Bank Small Business Lending Pre And Post Crisis, Kevin T. Jacques, Richard Moylan, Peter J. Nigro

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

We analyze small business lending at U.S. commercial banks, how it has changed over time and how it differs by bank size. Specifically, we examine the impact of government policy intervention on small business lending in the aftermath of the financial crisis. We find several important results. First, we find that the Troubled-Asset Relief Program’s (TARP) $200 billion Capital Purchase Program (CPP) had little impact on the banks that received capital injections’ small business lending. Second, the Small Business Loan Fund (SBLF) lending program appears to have been a success as banks participating in the loan fund increased ...


A Careers Perspective On Entrepreneurship, M. Diane Burton, Jesper B. Sørensen, Stanislav D. Dobrev 2016 Cornell University

A Careers Perspective On Entrepreneurship, M. Diane Burton, Jesper B. Sørensen, Stanislav D. Dobrev

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] What if being an entrepreneur were treated like any other occupation—teacher, nurse, manager? What if the decision to found a new venture were thought of as one of many options that individuals consider as they try to structure a meaningful and rewarding career? How would the field of entrepreneurship research be different? In our view, there is much to be learned by conceiving of entrepreneurship not solely as a final destination, but as a step along a career trajectory. Doing so opens the study of entrepreneurship to a wider range of scholarly insights, and promises important insights for ...

The data is based upon a group of 325 schools within the United States that completed an AACSB Salary Survey. This paper examines the salaries of entrepreneurship faculty by rank (Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Instructor, and New Doctorate), gender, and type of school (public versus private). The article also examines the supply and demand for entrepreneurship faculty over the past 10 years and estimates faculty retirements over the next 5 years. The findings of the research indicate ...


An Examination Of Job Opportunities, Candidates, And Salaries In The Field Of Entrepreneurship, Todd Finkle 2016 Gonzaga University

An Examination Of Job Opportunities, Candidates, And Salaries In The Field Of Entrepreneurship, Todd Finkle

Todd A Finkle

This article examines whether the field of entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly institutionalized by examining market trends, AACSB jobs, and salaries.  The findings indicate that the field is becoming increasingly institutionalized through market trends.  During 2014/15, there were 471 advertised positions and 163 candidates in Schools of Business and Management.  The number of tenure track positions (261) was significantly higher than the number of tenure track candidates (161) for a ratio of 1.62.  This is the highest ratio of tenure-track positions to candidates since 2005/06 (2.1).  Out of the 261 tenure track positions, 174 were at ...
