Abstract

This study investigated the extent to which entrepreneurial orientation can bring about the growth of SMEs in Bayelsa State. Innovativeness, risk-taking and proactiveness were used as dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation. One hundred and fifty copies of questionnaire were distributed to three local governments in Bayelsa State which are Yenagoa, Kolokuma/Opukuma and Brass LGAs. Our findings show that entrepreneurship orientation has significant effect on SME growth in Bayelsa State. The study further recommended a mental shift from indigenes, a new orientation that would make them depend less on political cakes and encourage their entrepreneurial mindset. This was suggested to keep the youths out of crime and juvenile delinquency.

 Key words: entrepreneurship orientation, innovation, risk-taking, proactiveness, SME,                  growth

Abstract

In developing countries, Entrepreneurship plays a great role to economic growth. Entrepreneurship creates new fields for the job seeker and it will ultimately reduce the unemployment problem of the country. Bangladesh is a developing country and here unemployment problem is a big issue in recent period. Entrepreneurship and service has a mutual exclusive relationship. The people wants to become entrepreneur are feeling discourage to become a service holder. In contrary the people wants to become service holder are feeling discourage to become an entrepreneur. There are some factors that greatly influence the entrepreneurial intention of the students. Basically a student takes decision by considering the present and future benefit of both entrepreneurship and service. Here we have select 400 graduates and non-graduates students to know their career objectives as well as their intension towards entrepreneurship. Only 64 respondents through positive response to entrepreneurship and they have little positive attitude towards the financial support, economic condition, scope and political condition in the perspective of Bangladesh. They also think that it has a poor social acceptance. But maximum respondents thought that it is an independent concern and it will make them more satisfied. Here we want to get the attention of the relevant bodies that will play a great role to develop these factors. If these factors are developed we will get more entrepreneurs. The enhancement of entrepreneurship will helps to reduce the unemployment problem as well as it will positively affect the economy of the country.

 Key words: Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Intention, Graduate and Non-graduate Students, Influencing Factors, Bangladesh.

Total Quality Management in Education

Authors: Uzma Rasool Khan, Samreen Khan, Sania M. Aslam, Sana Mateen & Nawal Punhal

Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the thoughts of the modern era paradigm on Total quality management “TQM” and its application in the field of education. This research also explores the adoption of total quality management in the field of education. Our research starts with the background theory/ literature review and then outline the result of the study, conducted by the students to obtain the different perspective on Total quality management in education. We applied survey methodology and selected questionnaire as an instrument. We used Multiple Regression to analyze the effect of TQM in education. By testing the hypothesis we have found out that the two sectors (government and educational institutions) agreed to adopt the concept of TQM except for the parental sector. This sector needs improvement. In our research F- statistics indicate positive results. It means that adoption of TQM in education gives you an excellent result in the overall system. As we can say that adoption of total quality management in education can ascertain more effective institutional change with success. As a result, this research proposed a theory which is obtained from TQM i.e. institutional change environment, sustainable success, and innovation which express the relationship between the educational institutions and the role of total quality management.
