  • The Interaction Effect of Personality Factor on Capability and Competence

    • Authors: Ala'a Zuhair Mansour, Aidi Ahmi, Oluwatoyin Muse Johnson Popoola
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: The auditing and accounting profession recently faced many challenges following fraudulent practices among the Jordanian public sector. The continuation of such fraudulent activities in the public sector impedes national economic developments and growth. This study's main objective is to have a practical and effective way of reducing the incidences of fraud in the Jordanian public sector. Specifically, this research explores the moderating role of neuroticism on knowledge requirements and fraud risk assessment performance in the Jordanian public sector. Adopting a survey method, the respondents of this study are forensic accountants and auditors in the Jordanian public sector. The research findings will contribute to the existing literature on forensic accountants, auditors, knowledge capability requirement, and neuroticism as a personality factor and fraud risk assessment performance of regulators regarding prevention and detection of fraud in the Jordanian public sector work environment.

  • The Effects of Work Stress on Employees Performance in the Banking Sector
           of Cameroon: Case of NFC Bank PLC Cameroon

    • Authors: Tabi Felici Banyi, Ndah Grimbald, Dr. Wuchu Cornelius Wutofeh, Henry Jong Ketuma
      Pages: 39 - 58
      Abstract: The overall issue of stress management in National Financial Credit (NFC) Bank in Cameroon is so essential that it plays a critical role in ascertaining and ensuring a stress free financial services industry. It is the ultimate dream of every employer to have a stress free job environment. Thus having the right attitude to execute the job in order to increase productivity has not always been the case. The purpose of this study was to establish the relationship between the effects of work stress and job performance in the Cameroonian banking sector. Specifically, the study sought to explore the views of employees at National Financial Credit Bank regarding the issue of stress, its impact on employee performance and its management.  Descriptive survey design was adopted as the most appropriate design for the study. The purposive and convenient sampling techniques were used to select all the heads of departments in the bank and the other bank employees for the study respectively. A sample of 50 respondents participated in the study. A questionnaire was designed based on a five point-likert Scale used in data collection. Five causal relationships were hypothesized and findings show that there was significant and positive correlation between employee performance and Work stress. Organizational level stress and group level stress as a mediating variable between individual level stress and work performance have a positive statistical significant effect on the performance of workers. This can be seen in table 13 (harmonized test of hypotheses) where the P_value for the stated hypotheses are significant within a 99% confidence interval level. The limitation of this study is that it was purely a quantitative based study. Future research should focus on using qualitative approaches to give an in-depth understanding on the causes of stress, the effects of stress and how stress management strategies can be designed to work. This study can offer useful information and insights for clarifying certain corporate concepts and can help to shape the development of future theory as well as the procedure for data collection and testing.

  • The Patenting Dilemma in Mexican Public Universities: the Case of

    • Authors: Vega-González Luis Roberto
      Pages: 59 - 81
      Abstract: Technologies and academic inventions are developed in the daily work of the faculties, centers and research institutes of public universities. Since not all of them have commercial potential we propose that they not necessarily must be subject to patenting, because they can be protected with other intellectual property figures. Although, in many cases the inventions have technical relevance and comply with the legal requirements, they do not have a market focus, therefore they are not susceptible to commercial exploitation, or even they are not oriented to the solution of a specific social problem. This work deals with the dilemma of which academic inventions must be subject to patent in a deep austerity environment. Patenting requires considerable time, financial and human resources and in a context that all type of resources in Mexican public universities are scarce and eventually are further reduced in times of deep austerity, special care must be taken with what is patented. Using the Case Study of an R&D public institute, in this article we develop a quick method for evaluating whether or not university academic inventions should be patented, using scientific, technological, commercial and financial relevance criteria once the invention complies with legal criteria.

  • Analysis of the Impact of Accounting Information Systems (AIS) on
           Organizational Effectiveness

    • Authors: Mouhamadou T Sow
      Pages: 82 - 91
      Abstract: The purpose of the study was to examine how AIS is observed by its users within an academic medical center where financial transactions are critical in managing patient care and research operations. A cross-sectional qualitative research design was applied using interviews, the convenience sampling method was used to select study participants, and a thematic analysis was conducted to identify patterns in the responses given. Based on the results provided in the interviews, 1) AIS design and specifications are associated with user satisfaction and performance in the workplace environment. 2) Organizations must focus on delivering AIS that offers the resources required for employees to perform their roles and being as effective as possible. 3) User needs should be identified as part of any AIS implementation or upgrade to support performance optimization with ongoing system utilization. The study questions were validated under the subject matter of job-related tasks and performance as related to the use of accounting information system. The study will aid the future business environment by obtaining employee feedback regarding future changes to the system that will address their specific roles and responsibilities so that the system promotes greater efficiency and will enhance performance.

  • Time Series Dynamics of Short Term Interest Rates in Turkey

    • Authors: Emel Siklar, Ilyas Siklar
      Pages: 92 - 108
      Abstract: Interest rate functions as the cornerstone for the heavy majority of the financial models. The high volatility in interest rates in the financial crisis of 2008/09 and resulting increased uncertainty led many researchers to focus on modeling the dynamics of changes in short term interest rates. This study aims to analyze the volatility of short-term interest rate in Turkey in terms of overnight repo rate and to forecast this rate for the next six months by modelling this volatility. For this purpose, the ARCH family models like ARCH, GARCH and EGARCH were preferred to use since they are the most common methods in the literature. Using the weekly frequency data for the period of January 2002 - January 2021, the model that best describes the stochastic volatility in the data was found to be the GARCH (1.1) model. As a result of the fact that the in-sample estimates were found sufficient, the interest rate estimates for the next 6 months were realized.

  • Students’ Satisfaction with Accounting Teachers’ Lesson Delivery, the
           Role of Perceived Quality of Lesson Delivery in Ghanaian Senior High

    • Authors: Ofori Debrah, Nasiru Inusah, Joseph Yaw Dwommor
      Pages: 109 - 124
      Abstract: To highlight the importance of the quality of lesson delivery for students’ satisfaction with the teaching and learning process in the classroom, this study examines the quality factors of accounting teachers lesson delivery that may influence students’ satisfaction with accounting teachers’ lesson delivery in Senior High Schools in Ghana. Survey questionnaire, a modified version of SERQUAL model, was used in collecting data for this study. In all, a sample of 504 students from 20 public Senior High Schools in Kumasi metropolis in the Ashanti region of Ghana participated in the survey. The findings of this paper suggest that accounting students in Ghanaian Senior High Schools are generally not satisfied with the quality of lesson delivery of their financial accounting teachers. In addition, classroom setting (environment, facilities and materials) and teachers’ teaching behavior (responsive to students’ needs, reliability, competency, and empathy) do not meet Senior High School accounting students’ expectations. It is evident from the results that teachers’ performance in lesson delivery, as perceived by students, influence students’ satisfaction with lesson delivery in the classroom. Perceived low performance on the service quality dimensions of accounting teachers’ lesson delivery seems more susceptible to low satisfaction with teachers’ lesson delivery. These findings imply that, quality of accounting teachers’ lesson delivery, especially, along the dimensions of tangibility, responsiveness, reliability, assurance and empathy in their lesson delivery requires improvement. There is the need for teachers and school managers to identify what students really expect from teachers in their lesson delivery so that teachers can make the necessary changes to improve lesson delivery quality and students’ satisfaction in the classroom.
