LinkedIn Analysis Job Placement for Students in The Sport Management Program of An Eastern Kentucky Public University

In addition to standardized tests and program assessments of academic programs, tracking college graduates’ employment is also dimed as an effective method for measuring student learning and success. In this case study, the authors examined 334 students’ LinkedIn profiles (57% males & 43% females) by using main keywords such as the name of the institution and sport management to gather information about current employment status, degree of program completion and primary self-identified skills of observed individuals. The results showed that 205 students had …


A Low-Cost, Low-Power, Scada Testbed Solution For Secure Remote Monitoring, Connor Berger Dec 2022

A Low-Cost, Low-Power, Scada Testbed Solution For Secure Remote Monitoring, Connor Berger

Symposium of Student Scholars

Similar to software application systems adopted by companies and businesses for product logging, payroll, human resources, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems control the distributed processes with multiple components located on different machines that communicate and coordinate actions in order to appear as a single coherent system. SCADA systems severely lack the appropriate security and hack prevention measures. We propose a low cost, low power SCADA testbed solution for secure remote monitoring. The goal of this research is to implement and test the testbed’s security by emulating attack vectors on both hardware components and communication channels to probe the …

Educational Equivalency Of Raspberry Pi Clusters In High-Performance Computing, Victoria A. Steckline, Robert Houghton

Mountain Plains Business Conference

Abstract

High-performance computing is a difficult subject to teach in an academic setting, given the exorbitant costs and technical difficulties. Raspberry Pi single-board computers have been used in recent years to create clusters that function as mini high-performance computers. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the educational equivalence of building a Raspberry Pi cluster in comparison to running a high-performance computing environment. For this research, an eight-node cluster was built and tested in comparison to a laptop. Through the process of building the cluster, skills learned were documented to evaluate the educational value. This research concludes that the …

What Happened In The Past: How Experience Does Not Mean Squat When It Comes To Adapting To The Changing Nature Of Work, Shawn M. Bergman Oct 2022

What Happened In The Past: How Experience Does Not Mean Squat When It Comes To Adapting To The Changing Nature Of Work, Shawn M. Bergman

River Cities Industrial and Organizational Psychology Conference

The magnitude and pace of workplace change mean that individuals also need to adapt and change their approach to solving modern business problems. The fact that analysis, creativity, and adaptability skills are continually listed as some of the most in-demand employee skills indicate that the workforce has not kept up. Instead, people rely on experience and intuition to solve novel problems. This reliance is concerning because neither have ever been listed as in-demand employee attributes and because experience often has a negative relationship with job performance. The session will introduce a decision-making framework and problem-solving approach, which first involves understanding …

Signal Cost And Value Alignment In Organizational Sustainability Messaging To New Hires, Mackenzie Law, Ellise Vangilder, Kaitlyn Miller, Mariana Solanilla, Luke Vavricka, Amanda Lillie, Jack Carson, Jim Westerman

River Cities Industrial and Organizational Psychology Conference

Introduction As companies continue to integrate sustainable initiatives as a strategic focus, their communications to new hires must adapt accordingly. Orientation programs represent an opportunity to inform new hires about the company’s sustainability values, but factors influencing the impact of sustainability messaging on new-hire perceptions remain unexplored. It is important for organizations to send signals to their new hires which are perceived as credible, meaningful, and genuine. However, the framing of sustainability orientation messages may combine with new-hire individual differences to influence these perceptions. We draw from signaling theory and value congruence research in HR to consider the potential impact …


Effectuation And Co-Creation In Social Enterprises: Examining The Relationship In The Context Of Uncertainty, Xiaoming Yang Oct 2022

Effectuation And Co-Creation In Social Enterprises: Examining The Relationship In The Context Of Uncertainty, Xiaoming Yang

Mountain Plains Business Conference

This study attempts to adjudicate the correlation between effectuation and co-creation in the context of social enterprises in India. The environments in which social entrepreneurs operate are highly uncertain, given the lack of institutional support in their operations. Although scholars have attempted to define approaches and strategies for scaling social enterprises, we propose in this study the relevance of effectuation logic and its subsequent effect on co-creation in building social enterprises, whereas it is observed that other linear factors like government support and slack resources are moderated by non-linear variable like uncertainty. To achieve this, we consider government support and …


Providing Farmers With The Legal Tools Needed To Keep The Equipment Running: An Update On The Agricultural Right To Repair Movement, Greg Nies, Bruce Elder Oct 2022

Providing Farmers With The Legal Tools Needed To Keep The Equipment Running: An Update On The Agricultural Right To Repair Movement, Greg Nies, Bruce Elder

Mountain Plains Business Conference

This presentation examines and summarizes the right to repair movement from the perspective of its origins, development, legal basis and – most significantly – its unique manifestation within an agriculture perspective. The agricultural equipment sector is more concentrated and less competitive than many other industries, while the typical farmer remains fiercely independent and self-reliant. This unique situation has led to conflict, forming the basis of the current agricultural right to repair dispute. Accordingly, the current state of the agricultural right to repair movement is examined and explained based on the recent policy, legislation, and litigation efforts employed at federal and …

Incivility In The Accounting Classroom: Have Educator Views Changed In The Last Decade?, Pat Seaton, Bruce Elder, Matt Bjornsen, Sarah Borchers Oct 2022

Incivility In The Accounting Classroom: Have Educator Views Changed In The Last Decade?, Pat Seaton, Bruce Elder, Matt Bjornsen, Sarah Borchers

Mountain Plains Business Conference

This paper is a revisit of a 2010 paper titled “Incivility in the Accounting Classroom” where faculty were surveyed on their perceptions of incivility centered around student actions in the classroom. The information provided will be used to discern the importance and incidence of incivility in accounting education. Results will be compared to those of the 2010 survey to obtain comparative data and discern trends and emerging concerns. The survey was tweaked to modernize it and bring in questions relating to both online learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants were selected from the American Accounting Association directory of …


Ceo Types And Firm Efficiency, Lok Chi Lam Oct 2022

Ceo Types And Firm Efficiency, Lok Chi Lam

Mountain Plains Business Conference

This paper investigates the connection between CEO types and firm efficiency. I utilize the general ability index (GAI) as a proxy to examine and separate CEO types: generalist CEOs and specialist CEOs. Initially, I applied the pooled ordinary least square on 26,830 firm-year observations to explore the GAI effect on firm efficiency. The finding shows that GAI has a negative impact on firm efficiency. It indicates that CEOs with lower GAI are better at improving firm efficiency; for instance, specialist CEOs are preferable to generalist CEOs. Further analysis of CEO types using the quadrant method supports this result.

Ncaa Interdivisional Games: Are There More Injuries When David Plays Goliath?, David L. Carr, Gregory M. Huckabee, Thomas Tiahrt Oct 2022

Ncaa Interdivisional Games: Are There More Injuries When David Plays Goliath?, David L. Carr, Gregory M. Huckabee, Thomas Tiahrt

Mountain Plains Business Conference

All intercollegiate football carries a risk of injury in a collision sport. Schools from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) often play early-season games against schools from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). FCS schools (David) often receive the largest payouts by playing FBS schools. FBS schools (Goliath) are able to schedule early-season games they are likely to win while providing the opportunity to tune up their teams. Our research question is whether FCS teams report more injuries when playing FBS opponents than they report when playing FCS opponents. We have received access to the NCAA injury dataset from Datalys.


Men In Nursing: Implications For The Profession And Broader Workforce Trends, David K. Palmer, Nancy Stuart, Michelle Fleig-Palmer Oct 2022

Men In Nursing: Implications For The Profession And Broader Workforce Trends, David K. Palmer, Nancy Stuart, Michelle Fleig-Palmer

Mountain Plains Business Conference

Typically,nursing has been considered a gendered profession dominated by women. As traditionally blue-collar, male-dominated occupations such as assembly-line work have declined,the percentage of men in the nursing profession has increased to 12%. This is not a recent phenomenon;a significant percentage of men served as nurses up through the 1800’s.

In this analysis of men serving in the nursing workforce, we begin with a historical review and then discuss implications for the nursing profession, e.g., recruitment,education,practice, retention,and culture, as well as implications for the broader labor market, e.g., compensation trends by industry and gender

Managerial Ability And Financial Statement Comparability, Matt Bjornsen, Matthew Stallings Oct 2022

Managerial Ability And Financial Statement Comparability, Matt Bjornsen, Matthew Stallings

Mountain Plains Business Conference

This study examines the relationship between managerial ability and financial statement comparability. We find that accounting comparability is associated with managerial ability. Specifically, firm-pairs by industry-year with similar managerial ability are associated with more comparable financial statements. We also find that firm-pairs with similarly low-level ability managers are associated with more comparable earnings than firm-pairs with similarly high-level ability managers. Overall, the results suggest that managers can impact the comparability of earnings and that less able managers are associated with more comparable financial statements.


A "Russian Romance Scam" Discussion Case Study, Karl Borden Oct 2022

A "Russian Romance Scam" Discussion Case Study, Karl Borden

Mountain Plains Business Conference

It should not be a surprise that the increasing ubiquity of online dating and the use of social media generally for romantic liaisons has in turn provided fertile ground for a substantive increase in romantic con games and scams. The Internet Crime Complaint Center of the FBI in 2018 reported that online dating and romance scams was one of the top Internet scams reported with over 18,000 complaints reporting losses of over $362 million. (Whitty, 2015; pp444).

In 2020, this author received a fairly standard “broadcast” email that he immediately recognized as the opening play of a “Honey Pot” scam. …

Generational Differences In Consumer Decision-Making Constructs, Heather Meyer, Chloe Murphy Oct 2022

Generational Differences In Consumer Decision-Making Constructs, Heather Meyer, Chloe Murphy

Mountain Plains Business Conference

Reference groups supply the individual with a sense of group membership, and thereby social identity. In the consumer behavior literature, reference groups have been shown to impact not only individual purchases, the decision-making process, and attitude formation towards brands and products. Generational cohort theory argues that people who experience major life events during a similar point in time possess synonymous values, characteristics, and preferences that are manifested through individual behaviors. The goal of this study is to extend prior research by examining generational differences in various consumer decision-making constructs. The results were mixed as are discussed.
