The Impact Of Terrorism On Consumer Sentiment: Evidence From Twitter Data, Kyla Scanlon Nov 2018

The Impact Of Terrorism On Consumer Sentiment: Evidence From Twitter Data, Kyla Scanlon

Posters-at-the-Capitol

This paper investigates the effects that 12 different terrorist attacks had on consumer sentiment, using data scraped from Twitter to determine a broad based emotional stance. This was inspired by my previous research that worked to determine the impact that terrorism had on the stock market. The goal of this research is to determine a more qualitative impact of terrorist attacks. I utilized Rapid Miner for data processing, and the Global Terrorism Database as my data source. The project began by examining the rise and fall of keywords and hashtags through sentiment analysis to measure reaction over time. The text ...


A Descriptive Study Investigating Accounting Students' Job Selection Preferences, Richard Wesley Apr 2018

A Descriptive Study Investigating Accounting Students' Job Selection Preferences, Richard Wesley

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Many accounting students are selecting accounting audit firms without exhausting a thorough research about the firms or getting an idea of the firms’ expectation. Moreover, accounting firms are hiring students without getting a clear understanding of the students’ job selection preference. As a result, both the students and employers are finding a cultural mismatch. Often employers and students have different perspectives about the nature of the professional skills that are required for a successful accounting career. Once hired, many students soon leave because they become disillusioned with job-related realities. The value of this research adds to the body of research ...

Differing Expectations For Corporate Moral Responsibility: A Product Category Analysis, Sojin Jung, Stacy Hyun Nam Lee, Jung Ha-Brookshire Jan 2018

Differing Expectations For Corporate Moral Responsibility: A Product Category Analysis, Sojin Jung, Stacy Hyun Nam Lee, Jung Ha-Brookshire

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The moral responsibility theory of corporate sustainability (MRCS) argues that according to the concept of corporate personhood, a corporation has moral responsibilities toward society and the environment, and can determine its level of commitment to meet those responsibilities (Ha-Brookshire, 2015). Using the MRCS theory, Jung and Ha-Brookshire (2017) attempted to empirically demonstrate U.S. consumers’ perceptions on a variety of corporate moral responsibility activities performed by consumer product companies, to determine whether each activity is a perfect or imperfect duty. Therefore, this exploratory study raised the following research question: What are the differences in consumers’ expectations toward corporate moral responsibility ...


Factors Affecting Fashion Retail Employees’ Workplace Behavior And Their Relationship With Employer, Stacy Hyun Nam Lee, Jung Ha-Brookshire Jan 2018

Factors Affecting Fashion Retail Employees’ Workplace Behavior And Their Relationship With Employer, Stacy Hyun Nam Lee, Jung Ha-Brookshire

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Extensive studies have been conducted to investigate the relationship between CSR and firms’ performance, but there is still a lack of research examining how CSR can be enhanced by different stakeholders. Furthermore, the organizational behavior literature suggests that employees’ organizational citizenship behavior and counterproductive work behavior can be critical to organizational performance. Thus, this study aimed to investigate employees’ positive and negative workplace behaviors and the factors that enhance positive behavior that helps improve organizations’ sustainability performance. The findings suggest that fashion retail employees’ perceptions of a corporation’s ethical values may encourage them to engage in OCB while reducing ...

Policies versus Practices: Transparency of supply chain disclosures among luxury and mass market fashion brands

Supply chain transparency can be defined as the minimum degree of disclosure to which supply chain policies, practices, agreements and procedures are open for public verification. In 2017, a Fashion Transparency Index rated and ranked 100 of the most affluent global fashion brands according to the level of transparent information they publicly share in five key areas: policies, corporate governance, traceability; audits and remediation; and negative impact reporting. For the 100 global fashion brands included in the index, we analyzed: (1) The amount, typology and ...

The Effects Of Design Piracy On Consumer Perception: When Large Fashion Corporates Pirate Small Independent Fashion Designers, Kassandra Ross, Wi-Suk Kwon, Hongjoo Woo

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Fashion design piracy has the potential to highly impact small designers through a combination of limited legal fashion rights and the proliferation of online exposure to their work. The purpose of this study was to examine effects of a revelation of fashion design piracy cases on consumers' perceptions about small designers and their designs, particularly when these designers were purportedly pirated by large fashion corporations. Through an online experiment of 260 college students, we examined perceptions of two designers and their designs narrowed from a pretest of purported piracy cases. Designers' value and uniqueness of designs, as well as brand ...

Decision Making: Do People With Dark Triad Traits Utilize Advice?, Elizabeth D. Mcnamara, Alexander T. Jackson, Aneeqa T. Thiele, Stacey M. Stremic, Satoris S. Howes Dr., Michael Hein, Mark C. Frame

River Cities Industrial and Organizational Psychology Conference

This research study seeks to gain a better understanding of the effects of the dark triad (narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy) on advice taking. This research examined whether or not the dark triad traits result in working professionals being more or less likely to accept advice when making a decision. Past research has shown that outcomes are generally more favorable when the person who is making the decision takes the advice of another person into consideration. Despite this fact, I hypothesized that people with higher narcissistic or psychopathic traits will not accept advice when making a decision. Additionally, I hypothesized that Machiavellians ...


Corporate Social Responsibility In The Health Care Sector, Dina Siniora Aug 2017

Corporate Social Responsibility In The Health Care Sector, Dina Siniora

Graduate Student Research Symposium

The challenge for the health care sector is to continually explore ways to ensure that the welfares of individual patients remain the utmost primacy and simultaneously promote health care equity via corporate socially responsible activities (CSR). There is an essential need to truly embrace CSR and ethical principles that would promote equal distribution of health care resources. Relevant CSR activities would be achieved by making the most significant health problems in a given society a priority of health care organizations. CSR in health care applied to hospitals and pharmaceutical companies should promote shared values and common ethical principles in new ...


Detecting Deception In Asynchronous Text, Fletcher Glancy May 2017

Detecting Deception In Asynchronous Text, Fletcher Glancy

Annual ADFSL Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law

Glancy and Yadav (2010) developed a computational fraud detection model (CFDM) that successfully detected financial reporting fraud in the text of the management’s discussion and analysis (MDA) portion of annual filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This work extends the use of the CFDM to additional genres, demonstrates the generalizability of the CFDM and the use of text mining for quantitatively detecting deception in asynchronous text. It also demonstrates that writers committing fraud use words differently from truth tellers.

Significant correlations were observed between personal business ethics and area of expertise and longevity with current employer. We found significant difference on ethical behavior and areas of specialization. In addition, we found that there is a statistically significant difference in the ...


Is "Help" Helpful?: Analyzing Foreign Aid In Context Of Scale, Catherine Hull Apr 2017

Is "Help" Helpful?: Analyzing Foreign Aid In Context Of Scale, Catherine Hull

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

Foreign aid comes in many forms. Foreign aid ranges from large-scale disaster relief to small-scale individual projects within communities. Most aid efforts have the same goal – to help those who would benefit from assistance. This case study addresses the question: what form of ‘help’ is helpful? Which type of aid best achieves what it sets out to accomplish?

To directly analyze the effect of foreign aid on a region, the water-conscious organization Pure Thirst traveled to the rural community of Olkokola, Tanzania. Pure Thirst worked alongside the community members to provide a form of humanitarian aid: improved water services to ...

Title: An Inductive Study of Perceived Susceptibility to Unethical Behavior

Student: Sydney Gebka

Faculty Mentor: Johnathan K. Nelson, Ph.D.

Institution: Morehead State University

Department: College of Business and Technology – School of Business Administration

Well-publicized ethics scandals and research on ethical behavior provide evidence that just as everyone is capable of making mistakes, the vast majority of individuals are capable of making unethical decisions. Despite this evidence though, the vast majority of people tend to think of themselves as very ethical people. However, there is often a gap between how ethical people are compared to how ethical they perceive themselves ...

Who Is To Blame? Attribution Theory In The Automotive Industry, Jonathan Edwards Apr 2016

Who Is To Blame? Attribution Theory In The Automotive Industry, Jonathan Edwards

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Automotive manufacturers have a fiduciary duty to the consumer not only to provide transportation from point A to point B; their duty encompasses much more than that. The manufacturer is expected to design, produce, and market vehicles that protect the driver and passengers from bodily harm in the case of an accident. However, sometimes the manufacturer fails in this duty. When this happens, it is imperative that the manufacturer is clear about where and what went wrong. The manufacturer is expected to find an amicable solution to the problem and implement change where needed. We seek to look at what ...

Perceived Value E-Ticketing As Sports Entertainment Options, Amber A. Smith-Ditizio

Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings

Through the advantages of online and electronic ticketing services, the sporting entertainment industry has been able to increase the production and effectiveness of their customer relation management department. While simultaneously minimizing and perfecting the current concerns of electronic ticketing such as; costs, safety measures to both consumers and companies, delivery modes, comparisons to traditional ticket services, and technological sophistication. An empirical study of business professionals in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania metropolitan area revealed that age, amount of disposable income, and education were not predictive of the degree of customer satisfaction derived from the use of e-ticketing for sports events, possibly pointing ...
