A Return To The Cash Conversion Cycle And Corporate Returns, Madyson McPherson 2018 Utah State University

A Return To The Cash Conversion Cycle And Corporate Returns, Madyson Mcpherson

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

A little over twenty years ago, Jose, Lancaster, and Stevens (1996) wrote a paper examining the relationship between profitability and ongoing liquidity management for firms over a twenty-year period, from 1974 to 1993. They test the relationship between the cash conversion cycle, ongoing liquidity management, and other methods of profitability using a regression analysis (Jose, Lancaster, and Stevens, 1996). This paper aims to do the same but with a selection of firms over a different twenty-year period, from 1993 to 2013. We implement Jose et al.’s methodology with updated data to see if contemporary data yields similar results: aggressive ...


The Effects Of Economic Policy Uncertainty On Common Stock And American Depository Receipts, Bradley David Zynda II 2018 Utah State University

The Effects Of Economic Policy Uncertainty On Common Stock And American Depository Receipts, Bradley David Zynda Ii

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Uncertainty can have profound implications on both firms and individuals who hope to optimally make decisions in their best interest. In this research, I seek to examine the impact that economic policy uncertainty has on domestic and foreign stock. In particular, I take a market microstructure perspective focused on stock liquidity and volatility measures in response to changes in economic policy uncertainty. Understanding the directional flow of economic policy uncertainty and the magnitude of the consequences at home and abroad can both help prepare agents to make good decisions about the future and exhort policy makers to be more efficient ...


Behavioral Agency And Social Norms.Docx, Don O'Sullivan, Leon Zolotoy, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr 2018 Melbourne Business School

Behavioral Agency And Social Norms.Docx, Don O'Sullivan, Leon Zolotoy, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr

Geoffrey P Martin

Drawing on arguments from institutional theory, this study examines how social norms—specifically, local religious social norms—affect the motivational impact of equity-based incentives. We test our model using longitudinal data on local religious norms, CEO equity incentives and firm value. Consistent with our theoretical predictions, we find that local religious social norms attenuate the impact of CEO option incentives upon firm value.  Furthermore, we find that the attenuating impact of local religious social norms increases with managerial discretion. These findings provide valuable insight for human resource professionals and boards aiming to design compensation contracts that are aligned with firm ...


Face Detection Using Deep Learning: An Improved Faster Rcnn Approach, Xudong SUN, Pengcheng WU, Steven C. H. HOI 2018 Singapore Management University

Face Detection Using Deep Learning: An Improved Faster Rcnn Approach, Xudong Sun, Pengcheng Wu, Steven C. H. Hoi

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

In this paper, we present a new face detection scheme using deep learning and achieve the state-of-the-art detection performance on the well-known FDDB face detection benchmark evaluation. In particular, we improve the state-of-the-art Faster RCNN framework by combining a number of strategies, including feature concatenation, hard negative mining, multi-scale training, model pre-training, and proper calibration of key parameters. As a consequence, the proposed scheme obtained the state-of-the-art face detection performance and was ranked as one of the best models in terms of ROC curves of the published methods on the FDDB benchmark

If The Slipper Fits: The Relationship Between A Cinderella Appearance In The Ncaa Division I Men’S Basketball Tournament And Institutional Financial And Admissions Factors, Kelly Childs

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

This study examined the relationship between a non-Power Five Cinderella team in the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament and institutional financial and admissions factors. The purpose of this study was to examine what, if anything, changes for a non-Power Five school who makes the March Madness tournament as compared to those similar schools who do not. This was a unique study because it looks at the variables of percent admitted, applications, enrollment, SAT/ACT, and donations together, different from the current body of research which has looked at many of these institutional factors separately. Additionally, many of these ...

Social Responsibility In Higher Education, Maureen L. Mackenzie Ph.D., Melissa McCardle Ph.D., Melissa Gebbia Ph.D., Susan Bliss Ph.D. 2018 Molloy College

Social Responsibility In Higher Education, Maureen L. Mackenzie Ph.D., Melissa Mccardle Ph.D., Melissa Gebbia Ph.D., Susan Bliss Ph.D.

Maureen Mackenzie

Current events such as the recent removal of the CEO of United Airlines for being “bought” by port authority officials highlights the need to prepare students for ethical and effective participation in corporate, non-profit and civic life. Ongoing problems with the leadership of financial, political and social institutions, and increasingly diverse society and persistent inequities in the educational system point to the need for intentional learning opportunities that support the development of ethical leaders & informed citizens who are capable of solving complex social problems in a multicultural society.

Where do library directors, and the librarians who perform various management functions as part of their work, receive their management training? A review of the curricula of 48 library school programs accredited by the American Library Association revealed that, for the most part, library managers need to be trained on the job. This paper presents the results of an exploratory study focused on the research question: Do ALA accredited library education programs properly prepare library students to enter management level positions within the library profession? Of the programs reviewed, 43.8% did not require a management-related course within its degree ...

Competitiveness Of Hybrid Electric Aircraft On Short Range Scheduled Flights, Johannes Anton, Hans-Joachim K. Ruff-Stahl 2018 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Competitiveness Of Hybrid Electric Aircraft On Short Range Scheduled Flights, Johannes Anton, Hans-Joachim K. Ruff-Stahl

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Hybrid electric aircraft are expected to enter the small regional aircraft market within the next two decades. The aim of this study was to investigate if a hybrid electric passenger aircraft with 50 seats can be competitive against the established 100 seat aircraft on short range scheduled flights. The Embraer EMB 145 and EMB 190 regional jets were chosen as benchmarks for that market. A hypothetical hybrid version of the EMB 145 with increased fuel efficiency was tested on a cost per available seat mile (CASM) basis. The t tests confirmed significant (p < 0.05) competitiveness of the hybrid version, while in contrast the conventional 50-seater was significantly more expensive compared to the 100seat aircraft. This indicates that hybrid aircraft could enter the short haul market with a competitive advantage, even against the established 100 seat regional jets.

This study aims to look at various businesses and address how they view and deal with the idea of making their practice more environmentally friendly and sustainable. More specifically, it will focus on how businesses spend money to make sure they are “green.” It will show whether or not businesses are more focused on earning money and making profit or about making the transition to being more environmentally concerned even if that includes spending more money to do so. This study also explores the benefits for businesses that choose to “go green” to see if the investment of being more ...
