American Business Review

The generational cohort now commonly referred to as Generation Z numbers approximately 65 million in the United States. They share a number of traits with their millennial predecessors, such as the aspiration to purchase from, and work for socially conscious companies. They are also the first generation to grow up with instantaneous access to information via digital mobile technology and rely on digital platforms and social media for information.

When Failure Is Neither Fatal Nor Final: Understanding Re-Internationalization Processes, Salman Ali, Ajeet N. Mathur 2022 Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode

When Failure Is Neither Fatal Nor Final: Understanding Re-Internationalization Processes, Salman Ali, Ajeet N. Mathur

American Business Review

Re-internationalization, or firms’ re-entry into international operations after completely withdrawing from initial international business failures, is a neglected phenomenon in international business research. This research develops theoretical underpinnings for understanding re-internationalization processes through an inductive theory-building approach using case studies of four Indian firms from diverse industries. We examine various aspects of firms’ initial internationalization, including the learning and experiences gained during such activities, the role of networks and relationships, valences in organizational commitment to internationalization during the exit and time-out periods, and the significance of dynamic capabilities that facilitate successful re-internationalization of firms. Our theorizing is relevant for scholars ...

Pay Negotiations Differences In Men And Women How Gender’S Effect On Self-Advocacy Contributes To Sex Discrimination In Corporations, Laurel Mccabe

Information Systems Undergraduate Honors Theses

Sex discrimination comes in many shapes and colors, such as not wanting to hire pregnant women, passing women up for promotions because of their status of motherhood, women being more likely to be removed from their upper management positions when things go wrong compared to their male counterparts, and economic differences in negotiated outcomes based on gender. Sex discrimination is something organizations should be concerned with their participation in and facilitation of and examine, internally, how to diminish its effect on female employees. Organizations need to clarify that wages are negotiable and increase visibility into compensation plans, hiring, and promotions ...

A Black-Scholes User's Guide To The Bachelier Model, Jaehyuk Choi, Minsuk Kwak, Chyng Wen Tee, Yumeng Wang

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

To cope with the negative oil futures price caused by the COVID-19 recession, global commodity futures exchanges switched the option model from Black-Scholes to Bachelier in April 2020. This study reviews the literature on Bachelier's pioneering option pricing model and summarizes the practical results on volatility conversion, risk management, stochastic volatility, and barrier options pricing to facilitate the model transition. In particular, using the displaced Black-Scholes model as a model family with the Black-Scholes and Bachelier models as special cases, we not only connect the two models but also present a continuous spectrum of model choices.

Leader-Member Exchange (Lxm) Differentiation And Organizational Outcomes: The Role Of Leader Integrity And Perceived Inclusion, Lipika Neshmin Arif

Theses and Dissertations

The leader-member exchange (LMX) relationship is dynamic and rewarding for organizational success. The exchange relationship between a leader and his/her followers can vary from high-quality to low-quality relationships and thus affect the benefits of the organization. Therefore, the main emphasis of this paper is to examine the influence of LMX differentiation, known as leaders' differential relationships quality with a set of followers, on organizational outcomes such as affective organizational commitment, innovative work behavior, and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). This study proposes a moderated mediation model to explain how and when LMX differentiation impacts organizational outcomes. Drawing from the social ...

The utilization of the Bluetooth protocol has provided many with the seamless transmission of data to multiple devices. Given its versatility and being an efficient process of connectivity, it has become one of the preferred methods of wireless connections. Despite this, an aspect of the Bluetooth function is still vulnerable to being exploited by having the data transmission stolen. This project answered the following questions: “How does one reduce the vulnerability by comparing normal and abnormal Bluetooth data?”, “How does one identify outlying variables within the data?” and “How can we improve the Bluetooth function?”. This project relied on previous ...

Gender, Bottom-Line Mentality, And Workplace Mistreatment: The Roles Of Gender Norm Violation And Team Gender Composition, Kenneth TAI, KiYoung LEE, Eugene KIM, Tiffany D. JOHNSON, Wei WANG, Michelle K. DUFFY, Seongsu KIM 2022 Singapore Management University

Gender, Bottom-Line Mentality, And Workplace Mistreatment: The Roles Of Gender Norm Violation And Team Gender Composition, Kenneth Tai, Kiyoung Lee, Eugene Kim, Tiffany D. Johnson, Wei Wang, Michelle K. Duffy, Seongsu Kim

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Although gender has been identified as an important antecedent in workplace mistreatment research, empirical research has shown mixed results. Drawing on role congruity theory, we propose an interactive effect of gender and bottom-line mentality on being the target of mistreatment. Across two field studies, our results showed that whereas women experienced more mistreatment when they had higher levels of bottom-line mentality, men experienced more mistreatment when they had lower levels of bottom-line mentality. In another field study, using round-robin survey data, we found that team gender composition influenced the degree to which the adoption of a bottom-line mentality by female ...

The Authenticity Of Body Positivity In The Media: A Comparative Analysis Of Four American-Owned Companies, Emma Mink

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Marketing strategies are changing how businesses sell their products. The body positivity movement is causing consumers to examine companies to determine if their intentions are authentic. Some of the ways consumers evaluate company authenticity include examining corporate social responsibility reports, types of advertising, or the brand-cause fit between the company and the body positivity movement. The author of this study followed two companies (Dove and Aerie) that are known for body positive advertising messages and two companies (Mattel/Barbie and Victoria Secret) that are known for promoting unrealistic body expectations. The author examined each companies’ mission statement, annual report, and ...

Leadership, Justice, And Inclusion: Assessing The Effect Of Values-Based Leadership Approaches O Fairness-Related Climates, Matthew T. Oglesby 2022 University of South Alabama

Leadership, Justice, And Inclusion: Assessing The Effect Of Values-Based Leadership Approaches O Fairness-Related Climates, Matthew T. Oglesby

Theses and Dissertations

Building on Banks et al.’s (2018) grouping of authentic, servant, ethical, and charismatic leadership as values-based or moral leadership approaches, this study explores the relationship of values-based leadership to communal outcomes via fairness-related organizational climates. I utilize social exchange theory to explain the reciprocal and rational relationships between leadership, climate, and outcomes. Additionally, I utilize congruence theory to explore the benefits of alignment between certain values-based leadership approaches and particular fairness-related climates. Specifically, I suggest that authentic and ethical leadership align more closely with distributive and procedural justice climate, while servant and charismatic leadership align more closely with interactional ...

Moving Right Along: Examining The Venture Gestation Process For Black Women Entrepreneurs, Andrea Floyd

Theses and Dissertations

Entrepreneurship is becoming one of the most sault after professions due to factors such as locus of control, flexibility, need for achievement, autonomy, and escaping corporate America. Many have come to realize that some of the most common reasons for pursuing entrepreneurship are not as convenient as expected. In fact, some of the inequalities experienced in corporate America are also experienced during venture creation. This is more so apparent for marginalized groups such as people of color, people with disabilities, and women. This study explores the barriers faced by African American women during the venture creation process and some of ...
