Optimal Stackelberg Strategies For Financing A Supply Chain Through Online Peer-To-Peer Lending, Guang-Xin Gao, Zhi-Ping Fan, Xin Fang, Yun Fong Lim

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

In recent years, supply chain finance (SCF) through online peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platforms has gained its popularity. We study an SCF system with a manufacturer selling a product to a retailer that faces uncertain demand over a single period. We assume that either the retailer or the manufacturer faces a capital constraint and must borrow capital through an online P2P lending platform. The platform determines a service rate for the loan, the manufacturer sets a wholesale price for the product, and the retailer chooses its order quantity for the product. We identify optimal Stackelberg strategies of the participants in the ...


Learning To Become A Taste Expert, Kathryn A. LaTour, John A. Deighton 2018 Cornell University

Learning To Become A Taste Expert, Kathryn A. Latour, John A. Deighton

Articles and Chapters

Evidence suggests that consumers seek to become more expert about hedonic products to enhance their enjoyment of future consumption occasions. Current approaches to becoming expert center on cultivating an analytic mindset. In the present research the authors explore the benefit to enthusiasts of moving beyond analytics to cultivate a holistic style of processing. In the taste context the authors define holistic processing as non-verbal, imagery-based, and involving narrative processing. The authors conduct qualitative interviews with taste experts (Master Sommeliers) to operationalize the holistic approach to hedonic learning, and then test it against traditional analytic methods in a series of experiments ...

Cahrs Partners' Implementation Of Artificial Intelligence, Hannah Lee, Soyeon Lee, Michaela Tarpey 2018 Cornell University

Cahrs Partners' Implementation Of Artificial Intelligence, Hannah Lee, Soyeon Lee, Michaela Tarpey

CAHRS White Papers

[Excerpt] The ideas and uses for Artificial Intelligence (AI) are abundant, and each business is seemingly ripe for disruption, including HR. As the hype surrounding AI continues to be championed by popular press, we began our research in order to determine whether the press’ biased view that AI was here and ready to implement was accurate. We found that in reality, AI programs were far behind the progress discussed, as the software was slower, more expensive, and there was a general lack of amalgamation throughout the industry. From there, we asked CAHRS partners to tell us where AI was used ...


Authentically Disney, Distinctly Chinese: A Case Study Of Glocalization Through Shanghai Disneyland’S Brand Narrative, Chelsea Michelle Galvez 2018 California State University - San Bernardino

Authentically Disney, Distinctly Chinese: A Case Study Of Glocalization Through Shanghai Disneyland’S Brand Narrative, Chelsea Michelle Galvez

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

In 2016, the Walt Disney Company launched Shanghai Disneyland--the company’s first theme park in mainland China. Entering mainland China poses significant political and cultural challenges for American companies. To address these challenges, Disney pursued a “glocalization” strategy -- it accounted for local norms and values in launching Shanghai Disneyland. This paper examines how Shanghai Disneyland constructed its brand narrative to negotiate tensions in this glocalization process. A semiotic analysis of two Shanghai Disneyland commercials illustrates the ways in which Disney tapped into culturally meaningful themes of harmonic balance and collective identity to produce the park’s brand narrative--“China’s ...

Delegation Application, Erik Matthew Phillips

Computer Science

Delegation is a cross-platform application to provide smart task distribution to users.

Within a specific team, members possess individual skills within different areas of the team’s responsibilities and specialties, and certain members will be better suited to tackle specific tasks. This project provides a solution, consisting of a smart cross-platform application that allows for teams and individuals to quickly coordinate and delegate tasks assigned to them.

Goliath Sized Campaign: Promoting Leadership Principles To The Millennial Generation Utilizing A Guerrilla Design Campaign, Ryan Smith

Masters Theses

We are nearing a critical juncture with the retirement of the Baby Boomer generation. The growing demand to replace this workforce with the millennial generation causes us to consider if millennials are up to the challenge. Although this next generation is tech-savvy, resourceful and innovative, many millennials have shared shortcomings including a sense of entitlement, demand for attention and praise and a poor work ethic. Lack of experience and no sense of direction, causes other generations to patiently wait to see what will come of millennials. But through strong leadership development there is hope. By instilling leadership characteristics and encouraging ...

The Price Of Praise In The Market For Virtue: A Paradox Of Rating And Recognizing Responsibility, Ben William Lewis 2018 Brigham Young University

The Price Of Praise In The Market For Virtue: A Paradox Of Rating And Recognizing Responsibility, Ben William Lewis

All Faculty Publications

In this study, I investigate how organizations respond to positive social ratings. Drawing upon theoretical insights from the organizational literatures on reputation, information disclosure, and commensuration, I argue that positive social ratings that define a specific and fixed threshold for recognition can alter the market price for a signal of virtue, and thus lead high-performing organizations to reduce their subsequent social performance. To test this hypothesis, I examine how large public corporations responded to a social responsibility rating that evaluated and recognized their prior philanthropic efforts. I find that firms recognized for their generosity were more likely to reduce their ...

Pipeline Or Waterslide: Advancing Women Into Executive Positions In Business And Financial Planning, Shannon Maura Domski 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Pipeline Or Waterslide: Advancing Women Into Executive Positions In Business And Financial Planning, Shannon Maura Domski

Celebration of Learning

We seek to understand the continued lack of females in upper management or “C-Suite” positions in business and more specifically looking at the continued lack of female planners in the financial planning industry. We hypothesis that although great strides are being made to foster inclusion these changes are stalled not only by unconscious prejudices against women, but also by a lack of confidence by women themselves. By conducting interviews with over a dozen women in a variety of executive and planning positions we attempted to bring a consensus of some of the root causes of this imbalance as well as ...
