Business And/Or Ethics? A Framework For Resolving Multicriteria Decision Dilemmas, E. Susanna Cahn 2022 Pace University, Lubin School of Business

Business And/Or Ethics? A Framework For Resolving Multicriteria Decision Dilemmas, E. Susanna Cahn

Communications of the IIMA

Corporate leadership is often in the unenviable position of balancing ethical choices and profit. Business decisions consider alternatives and make choices to further strategic business goals. Measures of business success are likely to be financial, including profit, revenue, sales, market share, cost of production, quality of products, innovative product development. Ethical decisions are choices among right and wrong outcomes or processes. Assessment of ethical choices may or may not be easily quantified, including consideration of positive and negative consequences, moral principles, and fair process. Inevitably, then, the inherent nature of business-ethics decisions will involve multiple decision criteria, including both business ...


A Comparative Analysis Of Devices Via The Bluetooth Protocol In A Time Series Analysis, Joseph Vazquez 2022 California State University, San Bernardino

A Comparative Analysis Of Devices Via The Bluetooth Protocol In A Time Series Analysis, Joseph Vazquez

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

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 ...


How The Financial Services Industry Is Utilizing Social Media To Expand Their Client Base, Kristen Stewart 2022 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

How The Financial Services Industry Is Utilizing Social Media To Expand Their Client Base, Kristen Stewart

Marketing Undergraduate Honors Theses

Social media is becoming an increasingly important aspect of all companies’ marketing strategies. It is almost imperative for companies to advertise through social media if they want to have a fair chance of reaching the younger generation. In fact, “the majority (97%) of Gen Z consumers say they now use social media as their top source of shopping inspiration; 65% say they use social media to find entertaining content; and 61% of them are specifically interested in watching more video content” (Kastenholz, 2021). This proves that social media can make a significant and lasting impact on a company’s success ...


A Study Of Social Engineering Concepts Within A Deceptive Defense, Jacob Glenn Oedekerk 2022 California State University - San Bernardino

A Study Of Social Engineering Concepts Within A Deceptive Defense, Jacob Glenn Oedekerk

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Organizations fall victim to costly attacks every year. This has created a need for more successful layers of defense. To aid in this need for additional defense, this study researches a way to bolster an underused defense style called deceptive defense. Researchers agree that deceptive defense could be the future of cybersecurity, and they call for more research in the deceptive category. The unresolved question from these researchers is what attack style could be used with a deception-based defense against an attacker. From this unresolved question, it was also determined that social engineering should be used in this culminating experience ...

Bitcoin, Blockchain Technology, And Cryptocurrencies, Jeffrey Dodson 2022 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Bitcoin, Blockchain Technology, And Cryptocurrencies, Jeffrey Dodson

Information Systems Undergraduate Honors Theses

The blockchain based cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin was theorized in a whitepaper published October 28, 2008, by Satoshi Nakamoto (pseudonym) (Nakamoto, 2008). The paper, titled, “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,” laid out a digital currency creation/exchange structure that employs a decentralized ledger that would later run on the author’s open-source application (Nakamoto, 2008). The main innovation of this technology is found within the security benefits provided by the proof-of-work consensus mechanism that requires solving a mathematic trap-door compression function to verify transactions/blocks added to the blockchain. On January 3, 2009, the genesis block, a term for ...

How Innovation Occurs In The Software Industry: A Qualitative Study On Innovation Management, Jihoon Rim 2022 City University of New York (CUNY)

How Innovation Occurs In The Software Industry: A Qualitative Study On Innovation Management, Jihoon Rim

Student Theses and Dissertations

Research in innovation has been widely conducted by academics. However, many of them merely define associations among innovation factors, findings are often contradictory, and research that involves innovation leaders with rich experiences, both successes and failures, is rare. Thus, how to best innovate remains a question among practitioners. This qualitative research is aimed at filling this gap in the literature. To that end, 23 innovation leaders, most of whom founded software companies worth hundreds of millions to billions of dollars, were interviewed with a grounded theory approach using Peter Drucker’s innovation theory as a lens through which to view ...

To Adopt Blockchain Technology Or Not: Is The Decision-Making Process Immune To Covid-19?, Rebecca Jauch

Thinking Matters Symposium

Blockchain technology has been shown to have advantages in improving the effectiveness of supply chain management. We use the Technology-Organization-Environment (TOE) framework with Threat-Rigidity Theory (TRT) to determine the factors that lead U.S. businesses to adopt blockchain technology, the factors that act as barriers to adoption, and the disruptive effect of COVID-19 on the rate of blockchain adoption


Sustainability In Web Development Through Energy Efficiency, Hannah Bebinger 2022 Bowling Green State University

Sustainability In Web Development Through Energy Efficiency, Hannah Bebinger

Honors Projects

As global internet usage expands, websites are growing in both size and complexity. Contrary to the common belief that the internet is immaterial and “environmentally friendly”, web pages have significant negative environmental impacts (Frick, 2015). Websites contribute to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and electricity consumption. Considering the current climate crisis, it is crucial that web developers be aware of the impact that their work has on the environment and actively work to improve site energy efficiency. With a lack of regulation and awareness, the environmental impact of websites has remained unchecked despite growing concerns for sustainability. Further research and ...

Digital Transformation: Implementing 3d Printing Activities Into Core Business Classes, Shota Yasuda, Rohit Gibson, Will Smith, Beau Wilkins, Blair Dilbeck, Jamari Baker

Symposium of Student Scholars

The business college’s new 3D lab, launched in August 2021, has been providing 3D design and 3D printing workshops for core business classes, specifically IS 2200 and IS 3100, to allow students to experiment with additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing. In the age of digital transformation, it is more important than ever that business school graduates are exposed to these emerging technologies, learn from experimentation, and develop a foundational understanding of these technologies so that they are better prepared to innovate and lead once they have graduated.

The idea of the 3D printing workshops is that ...
