Emotional Intelligence: The Effect On Social Media Use, Interpersonal Violence, And Gender, Gail Grabczynski 2018 Olivet Nazarene University

Emotional Intelligence: The Effect On Social Media Use, Interpersonal Violence, And Gender, Gail Grabczynski

Scholar Week 2016 - present

This study investigated the relationship between Emotional Intelligence (EI), social media use, interpersonal violence and gender. EI is a relatively new topic of research that has been of interest to many organizations due to the proposition that EI assists in the development of individuals. With the proliferation of social media, interpersonal violence and women in the workforce, a determination of a relationship between EI and those variables was warranted. The study was conducted at a small private Christian university. An online survey was administered to 123 sophomores. This study was a cross-sectional quantitative design, that utilized three established instruments to ...


Four Imperatives Driving Business Schools To Adopt Mobile Content Delivery, Toni Mulvaney 2018 Lamar University

Four Imperatives Driving Business Schools To Adopt Mobile Content Delivery, Toni Mulvaney

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Look around at people on any sidewalk, school hallway, classroom, and, most disturbingly, any car around yours on the road. You know that you are likely to see a staggering percentage of those people staring into the screen of a “smart” phone. Millennials and post-millennials are constantly “connected.” The Millennials even connect during class; at best to fact-check their teachers, at worst, to check the latest updates on Facebook. It will only get worse with the soon to arrive Post-Millennials who have been termed “millennials on steroids” by Lucie Green, the worldwide director of the Innovation Group at J. Walter ...


Developing Managerial Expertise: Experiential Learning Of Professional Skills, Lucy Ojode 2018 Texas Southern University

Developing Managerial Expertise: Experiential Learning Of Professional Skills, Lucy Ojode

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

We propose a pedagogical approach that expounds theoretical knowledge through exposure of students to practical experience as effective for developing professional skills. We use decision making as proxy for the relevant critical skills of effective managers. The approach entails reinforcement of abstract constructs with the know-how of managerial decision making among undergraduate business students. To substitute for apprenticeship, we suggest hands-on practice, such as in a simulation, where students apply business concepts so they can experience managerial decision making and the workings of business. Instruction on decision making generally assumes a rational procedure entailing: Defining a goal/problem, generating and ...

Implications Of Social Media Use On Instruction And Student Learning: An Exploratory Study, Desai Mayur, Lucy Ojode

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Despite being a norm in contemporary organizations including in academia, there is limited understanding how multimedia technology use might impact learning. We have also seen a rise in the use of social media applications such as Facebook, tweeter, Instagram, skype, flickr, and blogging among students, but it is unclear the extent to which the academe embraces these applications. In this study, we examine the potential role of multimedia technology and social media use in the learning process. We explore the potential implications for instruction and on student learning of the marriage between multimedia technology and social media use. Focusing on ...


Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair 2018 Texas Southern University

Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Security Operations Centers (SOCs) have been built in many institutions for intrusion detection and incident response. A SOC employs various cyber defense technologies to continually monitor and control network traffic. Given the voluminous monitoring data, cyber security analysts need to identify suspicious network activities to detect potential attacks. As the network monitoring data are generated at a rapid speed and contain a lot of noise, analysts are so bounded by tedious and repetitive data triage tasks that they can hardly concentrate on in-depth analysis for further decision making. Therefore, it is critical to employ data cleaning methods in cyber situational ...

The Influence Of Environmental Brand Activism On Millennial Environmental Consumer Behavior, Samantha Elkan

Advertising, Public Relations & Media Design Undergraduate Honors Theses

In this paper, the researchers examine the influence of environmental brand activism as green advertising on U.S. millennials’ green purchasing and recycling behavior intentions. The influences of gender, environmental knowledge, advertisement attitude and brand attitude are also analyzed. Researchers conducted an experiment through an online survey and randomly exposed each respondent to one of four advertisements, testing and controlling for environmental brand activism message vs. generic message and known brand vs. unknown brand. The sample consisted of 174 millennial students from the University of Colorado Boulder. Results suggest that millennials exposed to environmental brand activism as advertising possess higher ...

First Quarter 2018: Introducing Our Gateway Cities Index, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr 2018 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

First Quarter 2018: Introducing Our Gateway Cities Index, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices

Hotels in gateway cities have outperformed hotels in non-gateway cities, with hotels in gateway locations rising 10 percent in the past year, compared to 6 percent for those in non-gateway cities.

  • Hotel operating performance scaled by price is still in the black based on economic value analysis (EVA), with returns continuing to exceed borrowing costs (for debt).
  • Transaction volume strengthened both on a quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year basis.
  • While our various pricing metrics point to continued positive price momentum for larger hotels at the expense of smaller hotels, we are concerned whether rising interest rates will put a damper on this ...

Developing Kenya’S Educational Capacity In Nuclear Security Through Nuclear Forensics Research, Hudson Kalambuka Angeyo

International Journal of Nuclear Security

Nuclear energy’s distinctive characteristics give rise to special educational requirements. These requirements are necessary to not only address the danger of nuclear proliferation, but also to build capacity for a secure nuclear fuel circle. In this paper, I assess the status of educational capacity in nuclear security both in response to, and in support of, Kenya’s nuclear power program. I highlight the nuclear security educational infrastructure’s key features in the context of nuclear power, noting the low capacity at Kenyan universities. I identify the steps required to ensure that the country’s dynamic nuclear regulatory infrastructural framework ...

When The Far East Becomes The Near East, Kylan Rutherford 2018 Brigham Young University

When The Far East Becomes The Near East, Kylan Rutherford

Marriott Student Review

America is in a critical stage of change in its international roles. The world has shifted away from the dated Cold-War binaries and surface-level, orientalist understandings of the East. The rising generation in America has the potential to connect with the international world in unprecedented ways, but for that to happen we have some homework to do.


Money In Whose Pockets? A Brief Insight On Current Minimum Wage Discussions, Ayric Westfall 2018 Brigham Young University

Money In Whose Pockets? A Brief Insight On Current Minimum Wage Discussions, Ayric Westfall

Marriott Student Review

Minimum wage policies have existed in the United States for over 80 years. But with an everchanging society, how can we as every day citizens and business leaders be better informed about minimum wage? Using research from various sources and professionals, we will examine arguments for and against minimum wage, inequalities in wages today, and regional variations of minimum wages. The relationship between business and workers is symbiotic; workers need businesses to survive and businesses need workers to make a profit. Understanding our role in this conversation is key to developing solutions for everyone.
