Abstract: The new economy is a knowledge-based economy marked by rapid globalization, tough challenges, and competitive pressure. This economy not only offers threats but also provides certain opportunities. In order to have a sustainable business, organizations are taking initiatives to adopt new ways of working. The same holds true for educational institutes as well. There is a need for educational institutes to discard old ways of teaching and learning practices and shift their focus towards action learning techniques to foster continuous learning and to transform them as learning organizations. The aim of this paper is to formulate the items of organizational level antecedents of learning organization and test them in Indian higher educational institutes to know if those practices are being followed by them.

- Teaching Business Ethics to Chinese Undergraduate Students: Using the Hunt-Vitell Experiential Learning Model
by Chen-Yu Feng, David Schein, Wei Song, Roger Collins
Abstract: Whereas Western literature on the teaching of business ethics is extensively developed, research of the subject in a non-Western setting is somewhat limited. This study investigated the possible impact of the teaching of business ethics on the cognitive competence and decision-making processes of Chinese business undergraduate students by using the Hunt-Vitell experiential learning model. A university in the northern region of the Peoples Republic of China was selected and a qualitative study, comprising both observation and in-depth, semi-structured interviews, was undertaken. The findings revealed that taking a business ethics course could have a significant effect on students cognitive development, but little impact on their ethical decision-making process. The study identified an inconsistency between the students comprehension of ethical principles and their application. Their behaviour when confronted with an ethical dilemma or situation was not consistent with the ethical theories they indicated could apply. The theoretical and the practical implications and the limitations of the study are noted. Directions for future study in this area are suggested.
Keywords: Keywords: The Hunt-Vitell Model, teaching of business ethics, Chinese undergraduate students, cognitive competence, ethical decision-making

- Data mining applications with the admission data of adult learners in higher education A pilot study
by Sylvia Chong, Mabelene Mak, Wai Mun Loh
Abstract: Admission offices are inundated with information from a variety of data sources and applications. This includes admission data such as student profiles and demographics as well as academic and professional experiences. The paper outlines a pilot study that uses data mining applications with the admission data of adult learners in a Singapore university. The application methodology has a sequence of four phases that leads to the building of relevant data mining models. The analysis of the admission data is used to determine the best-fit model to predict applicants academic performance. From the evaluation and validation of the different predictive models, the CHAID decision tree is selected as the predictive model. With this model, the probability of academic performance is computed for incoming and existing students by tracing the decision tree.
