Article 2: MODERATING EFFECT OF INFORMATION PROCESSING CAPACITY TO INVESTMENT DECISION MAKING AND ENVIROMENTAL SCANNING, pp. 9-22
By: Nik Maheran Nik Muhammad, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Kelantan, Malaysia
Muhamad Jantan and Fauziah Md Taib, Universiti Sains Malaysia
This study will examine the role of information processing capacity in enhancing investment decision quality and environmental scanning relationship. Cross sectional data was collected through a survey and analyzed by means of factor analysis and hierarchical regression analysis. Information processing capacity is only contingent upon technology information in order to affect the quality of investment decision. Method of scanning on the other hand will lead to quality decision only with the inclusion of information processing capacity. Use of convenience sampling may restrict the generalizability of findings. Information processing capacity is needed when scanning technology information to bring about decision quality, thus for technology related matters, firms should be investing in the information processing capacity to produce quality decision. Information processing capacity theory is genuinely new in the literature of investment decision making. This study uses decision as its unit of analysis.
Keywords: Environmental scanning, decision quality, information processing capacity
Article 3: IS DIRHAM BETTER PERFORMED THAN DINAR IN HEDGING FLUCTUATED PRICES?, pp. 23-30
By: Dziauddin Shraif, Norlina Hazamuri and Mohd Asyadi Redzuan, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Melaka, Malaysia
Previous researches had shown that the coinage system can make the whole economic system sustainable rather than fiat money system. Of course the reason for that is the Gold Dinar and Silver Dirham are capable of reducing the fluctuation in goods price, thus it can reduce the inflation and deflation. Despite the fact that the both gold dinar and silver dirham are in a same kind, but they are in a different weight age, hence each of them would bring different result in case of stabilizing or hedging the price fluctuation. The question may arise here is which one of these metal can be a better tool to stabilize or hedge the price fluctuation. As a response to this matter, an empirical study would be carried out to find the answer. Therefore, this study is purposely compared the performance of gold dinar and silver dirham in hedging the price fluctuation, and subsequently to identify which one of these commodity monies could be a better hedging tool.
Keywords: Performance, dinar, dirham, fluctuated prices, hedging

A total of 103 practicum students (25%) responded to a quantitative survey using a 5-point Likert scale to determine the practicum training effectiveness; followed by in-depth interviews on twelve purposive–selected trainees. Findings showed that the factors that make the industrial practicum training effective were: host organizations, roles of facilitators, roles of trainees and the training-learning curriculum in the practicum. The scope of study encompassed final semester business management students who had completed practicum attachments in various industries from multinational companies, national and local small-medium enterprises.
