College education: large university or small college?
Having a college degree today is an asset when applying for a decent job. Higher education is very expensive; it is a hard decision for parents and students when it comes to chose whether they will attend a large university or a small college. A large university and a small college have the same goals which are to educate, train, and develop students in their different fields, but they are also different in terms of class size, quality of teachers and tuition cost. It is important to have a good look at these different factors in order to chose between a large university and a small college when deciding what is the best for a student.
According to a recent study, the average number of students per class in some large universities is around 400 to 500 students per class. Students always argue that the atmosphere inside the classroom is very good. They have the opportunity to exchange ideas with a large number of others students who are taking the same course. The inconvenient part is that students most of the time do not really interact with their teacher. Also students do not have to attend class or to participate and the teacher would not even notice. The number of students in small college is around 15 to 40 students per class. Most of the time, students know each other. They build a personal relation with their teacher. The disadvantage of small class is that, there is less competition compare to a big classroom. Some students would not see the challenge and that sometime will impact the quality of teaching.
There are more professors with more experience that teach at large universities than in small colleges. This is advantage for students to be taught by someone who knows what he or she is talking about. The problem with large universities is that they have graduate programs and most of the time grad…...

...Question 1. As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He was lying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little he could see his domelike brown belly divided into stiff arched segments on top of which the bed quilt could hardly stay in place and was about to slide off completely. His numerous legs, which were pitifully thin compared to the rest of his bulk, waved helplessly before his eyes. What has happened to me? he thought. It was no dream. His room, a regular human bedroom, only rather too small, lay quiet within its four familiar walls. Above the table on which a collection of cloth samples was unpacked and spread out—Samsa was a traveling salesman—hung the picture which he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and put into a pretty gilt frame. It showed a lady, with a fur hat on and a fur stole, sitting upright and holding out to the spectator a huge fur muff into which the whole of her forearm had vanished! Gregor's eyes turned next to the window, and the overcast sky—one could hear raindrops beating on the window gutter—made him quite melancholy. What about sleeping a little longer and forgetting all this nonsense, he thought, but it could not be done, for he was accustomed to sleep on his right side and in his present condition he could not turn himself over. However violently he forced himself toward his right side he always rolled onto his back...

...leader. The Cadbury India Brand Strategy has received consistent support through simple but imaginative extensions to product categories and distribution. A good example of this is the development of Bytes. Crispy wafers filled with coca cream in the form of a bagged snack, Bytes is positioned as "The new concept of sweet snacking". It delivers the taste of chocolate in the form of a light snack, and thus heralds the entry of Cadbury India into the growing bagged Snack Market, which has been dominated until now by Salted Bagged Snack Brands. Byte was first launched in South India in 2003. Since 1965 Cadbury has also pioneered the development of cocoa cultivation in India.

...new universities in developing provinces of Turkey. This is a response to pressure coming from local MPs who in turn voice the demands of their constituencies. However, while the already existing 85 universities are wrestling with financial and academic difficulties, it does not seem to be a good idea to add new universities to the system of higher education. First of all, the new universities will experience staffing problems. That is, they will have difficulty finding faculty that is qualified to teach in these budding universities. In our country the number of academicians who meet the academic requirements is limited. New universities will have two choices: either to draw from the existing pool or to employ under qualified people. To attract those instructors from other universities they will have to offer attractive incentives . However, since these will be state universities they will not have the necessary funds and most academics will be unwilling to go to small town universities where academic and life standards are below par. The only venue open to these universities will be to employ local professionals or under qualified instructors. The inevitable result will follow: a drop in the quality of education. In addition to recruitment problems, small town universities will have financial difficulties. The funds allocated to them by the state will not be enough to build from scratch all the facilities that make a university a "real university". A university is......

The Study of International Business Is Fine If You Are Going to Work in a Large Multinational Enterprise, but It Has No Relevance for Individuals Who Are Going to Work in a Small Firm. Evaluate the Statement.

...[1] "The study of international business is fine if you are going to work in a large multinational enterprise, but it has no relevance for individuals who are going to work in small firms." Evaluate this statement. Comments:  Globalization is changing the world economy.  Firms, even small ones, can no longer ignore events going on outside their borders because what occurs in one country has implications for the rest of the world.  Individuals who believe they can act in isolation by working for a small firm are not being realistic, but rather myopic and insular. Today, thanks to advances in technology, many small firms sell and source internationally very early in their evolution, those that fail to take advantage of international opportunities may not achieve their full potential, and ultimately may fail as competitors that do recognize the importance of international business dominate.   In the United States, for example, almost 90 percent of firms that export employ fewer than 100 people.  They also account for more than 20 percent of U.S. exports.  [2] How have changes in technology contributed towards the globalization of markets and of production? Would the globalization of products and markets have been possible without these technological changes? Comments:  Technological change has made globalization a reality.  Major advances in communication, information processing, and transportation have brought the world closer together.  The development of the......

Finding Present Values: What is the present value of the following future payments: a) $1,210 in 2 years at a 10% discount rate: present value = $1,210/(1.10)2 = $1000 b) $1,259.71 in 3 years at an 8% discount rate: present value = $1,259.71/(1.08)3 = $1000 c) $1,040 in 1 year at a 4% discount rate: present value = $1,040/(1.04)1 = $1000 2. General formula for finding the present value of several future annual payments Present Value = P1/(1+r)1 + P2/(1+r)2 + ( +(F + Pn)/(1+r)n Where 1, 2, (n = number of years; r = discount rate; Pn = payment; F = face value 3. Finding Present Values Using the General Formula: a) You can make two different investments. The interest you receive on the first investment is $110 per year for three years. You receive $330 on the second investment in the third year and nothing in the first two years. If your discount rate is 6%, what should you pay for each of these investments? Present Value of #1 = $110 + $110 + $110 = $294.03 (1.06) (1.06)2 (1.06)3 Present Value of #2 = $0 + $0 + $330 = $ 277.07 (1.06) (1.06)2 (1.06)3 You will pay more for......

...To: Large Bakers Senior Management From: Gregg Gregson, Supply Chain Manager Subject: Inventory Decision For years, Large Bakers has always been receiving our order for flour in 25 cars per shipment done in a haphazard way. We have been finding means where we can create a balance or trade off with our inventory and carrying costs without compromising customer satisfaction and reduce the risk of stock-out to just 98.5%. Problem: We would like to reduce the odds of running out of stock to only 1.5%. Two possible options can be utilized in order to achieve this objective. Option A - 25-Car per shipment at even intervals with safety stock held for production variation A fixed order of 25 cars per shipment provides cost savings of $5 per tonne. Moreover, our supplier will be able to guarantee on time delivery as the order cycle is predetermined and fixed. Adding buffer stock per order can reduce risks of stock-outs but this entails having additional carrying costs. Option B - 25 cars at varying intervals without safety stock. This will allow us to order 25 car shipments in a variable order cycle in order that we are able to maintain inventory levels at minimum and only order when inventory is depleting to a determined ordering point. Orders in varying intervals have a variable lead time of 4 days as supplier cannot guarantee on-time delivery because it is not known when next orders will be placed. Analysis Option A – 25 regular car shipments with......

...Case 2 University Hospital (Marginal Cost Pricing) University Hospital is a regional leader in the very intense and medically sophisticated area of organ transplants. Mark Lewis, the director of the Transplant Center, has been with the Hospital for ten years. When Mark joined the hospital, he was put in charge of a kidney and heart transplant program that averaged 50 transplants per year. Today, the Transplant Center performs over 200 transplants annually, including transplants from the newly initiated liver, lung, and pancreas programs. The liver transplant program is the most successful of all organ programs in terms of volume and revenues. Last year, volume totaled 100 transplants, and this year Mark is optimistic that the liver program can do even better. However, he knows that increased volume is largely dependent on the number of organ donors and his success in negotiating a new contract with the Transplant Management Corporation (TMC), the largest transplant-benefits company in the nation. Because transplants are relatively rare in comparison with other, more conventional medical treatments, only the largest health insurers have the expertise to manage transplant services. However, the costs to insurers for transplant services are typically very large—usually in the six-to-sevenfigure range. To ensure the best and most cost-effective management of transplant services, most health insurers outsource transplant management to companies, such as TMC, that......

I will discuss as a large website, is, money mutual or (moneymutual.com), a website that promotes same day, pay day loans by multiple financial lenders endorsed by Montel Williams. The privacy policy and practice of the websites that this privacy document links are reviewed and hosted by Trustee. This is in compliance with Trustee’s program requirements, including transparency. The parts of the Privacy Policy that are confusing to me, is the reference to the policy compliance being transparent to accountability and choice regarding the collection of people’s information; but it says the Trustee’s does not cover information that may be collected through downloadable software. Trustee, who defines itself as the independent party to accelerate online trust among consumers and organizations globally through its leading privacy Trustmark and innovative trust solutions; Trustee at the end of the privacy policy does say that it has the right to share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose your information with/ to third party in accordance with applicable laws; i.e. marketing services, and applications, email marketers, wireless services, or postal mailings.
