Title : Evaluating the Performance of Higher Education Institutions Through Significant Relationships Between the Five Dimensions of Service Quality
Author(s): Salihuddin Bismelah
Abstract: One of the important determinants of a country's competitiveness is the quality of its higher education. This quality comes from a combination of excellent learning processes and public satisfaction with the services delivered. Assessment of student satisfaction is important in determining the quality of services in higher education institutions (HEIs). Remaining competitive requires superior institutions of higher learning (HEIs) to continue to acquire, maintain and build stronger relationships with students. The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate student satisfaction with the services provided by IPT. Specifically, early studies found a significant relationship between the five dimensions of service quality (tangibility, reliability, responsiveness, assurance, and empathy) or SERVQUAL and student satisfaction. Even the signs generally show that the majority of students are satisfied with the facilities provided by the university. Such findings should help universities make better strategic plans to improve student satisfaction in particular and overall performance in general. In general, the study shows that all five dimensions of service quality are associated with student satisfaction.

Partial Least Square (PLS) was used as a data analysis technique in this study with the help of SmartPLS software. The results showed that students' internal and external motivations influenced their English skills. In addition, this study also confirms that lecturers' teaching style has a direct positive effect on English skills.

Author(s): Seflidiana Roza; Tafdil Husni; Mansyuri Hamidi; Endrizal Ridwan; Mohamad Nasir Saludin
Abstract: This study aims to find out and evaluate how company experience and economic turmoil could influence the corporate distress of real estate companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 1998 to 2019. Using panel data logistic regression analysis, it was found that experience proxied by company age had a significantly negative effect on corporate distress prediction. Then, macroeconomic turmoil proxied by seeing the fluctuations in economic growth was made as a dummy variable which was determined by 0 for the contraction condition and 1 for the expansion condition. These conditions were seen from the changes or ups and downs of economic growth. This study revealed that macroeconomic turmoil had a significant effect on corporate distress prediction. With a negative coefficient, it means that in the condition of expansion, the probability of a company experiencing corporate distress is smaller.

Author(s): Agriqisthi; Rasidah Nasrah; Mohamad Nasir Saludin
Abstract: Covid-19 is a challenge that must be faced by businesses. When the pandemic occurred in Indonesia, every business person needed to maintain the resilience of the business being managed Not only coffee shops, the pandemic has also affected the behavior of coffee consumers. So this study aims to determine consumer behavior, especially women towards coffee during the pandemic and after the pandemic. This study uses a quantitative research method, which can be counted using statistical methods. Data collection was carried out by distributing questionnaires in 2020. The results showed that women's consumption attitudes related to coffee during the pandemic were significantly influenced by the variables of apathy, perceived control, and intention to behave. The most visible difference in consumer behavior is the reduction in female consumers coming directly to coffee shops due to the pandemic. And during the new normal era, the coffee shop was open offline but with limitations. Consumers who come directly to coffee shops need to pay attention to regulations that must be obeyed. During the Covid-19, coffee consumers preferred to order online. And the new normal period did not simply return people's living conditions to normal. Purchasing power for goods and services is very less. This indicates a change in consumer behavior patterns in the new normal era of consuming a product.

Title : Formalization of Informal Sector Business Enterprises and Accessibility to Social Security Services by Workers in Uganda's Informal Sector
Abstract: The study examined the effect of the formalization of informal sector business enterprises on accessibility to social security services by workers in Uganda’s informal sector. This study was motivated by the persistent concerns and outcry by stakeholders over the inadequate access to social security services by workers in the informal sector despite the sector’s huge contribution to the country’s economic development. Moreover, the study adopted a quantitative research approach and employed a descriptive correlational research design. Quantitative data were collected using the questionnaire method from 302 respondents who were randomly selected from the informal sector and analyzed using descriptive and regression analysis methods. Findings revealed that registration of informal sector businesses (B=.166; p=.001), accessibility to finances (B=.329; p=.000), and informal sector regulatory policies (B=263; p=.000) have a statistically significant effect on the accessibility to social security services. However, overall, the study revealed that formalization (R=.616; R2=.379; p=.000) has a significant influence on accessibility to social security services in the informal sector in Uganda. Therefore, it was concluded that other factors remaining constant, formalization of informal business enterprises would enhance accessibility to social security services by workers in Uganda’s informal sector. Thus, the study recommends that stakeholders need up all efforts aimed at formalizing the informal sector to enhance accessibility to social security services by workers in Uganda’s informal economy.
