  • Chinese Ethics: An Empirical Study of Idealism and Relativism

    • Authors: William E. Allen, Robert Lloyd, Roland Peer
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: The purpose of this empirical study is to examine the relationships between ethical views of certain Chinese demographics and to consider different trends that may affect academic and business considerations in the future pertaining to East-West interaction. This study utilizes Forsyth’s Ethics Position Questionnaire (EPQ) to assess the ethical views of 401 Chinese undergraduate students in a rural province of Central China. Regression analyses are applied to investigate the following hypotheses: In a new Chinese context, the EPQ is applicable for assessing the ethical views of Chinese undergraduate students in rural China. Rural Chinese undergraduate student EPQ results are demonstrative of, and, in view of prior studies, are predictive of changes in Chinese ethical considerations. Rural Chinese undergraduate student EPQ results reflect long held Eastern worldview approaches however, in view of prior studies, there is some increasing similarity with Western EPQ outcomes. The findings of this study support the acceptance of the first and third null hypotheses. The practical implications of this study include an understanding that China, though it is rapidly equating with Western levels of market technology and sophistication, continues to resist Western ideals and ethics. Rather, the blending of Western and Eastern principles will continue to evolve and the Chinese worldview will continue to be dominated by the goals and needs of the Chinese State in a reflection of the millennia old culture. The value of this study is that it updates data relating to Chinese ethical approaches in a fast-changing Chinese and global marketplace. Secondly, it clarifies the different considerations and approaches needed when Westerners are dealing with Chinese counterparts in academia and/or business. Lastly, it posits current and future trends likely to affect East-West relationships in these realms.

  • Personalised Content in Mobile Applications and Purchase Intentions: An
           Exploratory Study

    • Authors: Kleopatra Konstantoulaki, Ioannis Rizomyliotis, Antigoni Papangelopoulou
      Pages: 13 - 23
      Abstract: This study aims to examine how personalised content affects consumers’ purchase intentions in the mobile beauty shopping applications within the UK. Based on previous studies personalised content on mobile beauty applications influences consumer behaviour in terms of mobile application convenience, m-loyalty and emotions. In-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted with 12 females between the ages of 18-35 who live in the UK. According to the results, personalised content has a positive influence on both mobile convenience and m-loyalty while for emotions the influence is both positive and negative. Moreover, findings also suggested that the personalisation-privacy paradox can prevent consumers from making a purchase. The study provides suggestions towards m-retailers and managers in relation to m-commerce and beauty mobile applications. Findings also offer an insight with regards to how m-retailers can successfully incorporate personalised content to increase consumers’ retention and eventually their profitability.

  • The Credibility of Traditional and Online Media for the Promotion of
           Tourism in the Contemporary Tourism Marketing Environment in Durban South
           Africa

    • Authors: Douglas Chiguvi, Elvis Madondo, Ruramayi Tadu
      Pages: 24 - 35
      Abstract: The main purpose of study is to analyse the credibility of traditional and online media for the promotion of tourism in the contemporary tourism marketing environment in Durban South Africa. Explanatory research design was employed and the questionnaire was used to collect the data. The study findings revealed that traditional media and online media are more or less equally competitive for the promotion of tourism. The study also revealed that international visitors have a positive attitude towards online media than traditional media while domestic tourists have a positive attitude towards traditional media than online media. Traditional media was revealed to be highly credible than the general perception of the people and it is a lot more credible than online media. The survival of traditional media is not threatened by online media and traditional media is still working well alongside online media. The study concluded and recommended that tourism marketers and authorities need to come to terms with traditional media and online media coexistence. There is no need to rely on one media to do it all. Where traditional media lacks, online media must be there to make up the difference and enhance the tourist’s experience.

  • Evaluation of Internal Audit Operations and the Efficiency of Educational
           Performance in Nigerian Universities (A Case Study of Ekiti State
           University, Nigeria)

    • Authors: TAIWO Isaac Babatope, ADEGOKE Victoria Adewunmi
      Pages: 49 - 61
      Abstract: This project was designed to investigate the relevance of internal audit operations in Nigerian universities to find out the extent to which an effective internal audit role has benefited the performance of the university system and how it could be used as an instrument to improve the management of the university. This was generated off by an unprecedented line up of corporate failures in the university system and how internal auditors have been belittled in the time of policy formulation and project implementation. The research employed survey research design by which data were generated through an administered questionnaire on the staff of the Internal Audit department as well as the review of available documents and records of the Ekiti State University. The data analysis used descriptive statistics and percentage analysis, and the hypotheses were tested using the t-test statistic. The research employed statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) software version 17.0 in the analysis of data and test of hypotheses which showed that internal audit operation has a relationship with the performance of the university system (t-cal = 17.306 > t-crit = 2.353 at 5% level of significance). The research is to contribute to new knowledge by describing the internal audit profile of the Nigerian Universities to assist the university management in policy formulation and execution of projects that will lead to a better chance to maintain world-class educational societies. The research conclusion was based on the findings that there is a significant relationship between the internal audit operations and the performance of the university system, and that the management must always seek the opinion and indulgence of the internal audit department before they engage in the formulation and implementation of any policy and execution of any project.
