Persepsi pelanggan bukan Islam terhadap perbankan Islam: Satu kajian rintis
Mokhtar Mahamad,Izah Mohd Tahir
Jurnal Kemanusiaan , 2010,
Abstract: Kajian rintis ini bertujuan mengkaji persepsi pelanggan bukan Islam terhadap perbankan Islam. Data dikumpul melalui kaedah soalselidik yang diedarkan secara persampelan rawak kepada pelanggan-pelanggan bukan Islam dan dianalisis menggunakan kaedah deskriptif. Hasil kajian rintis yang telah dilakukan di sekitar Kuala Terengganu mendapati kebanyakan pelanggan masih lagi mempunyai tahap pengetahuan yang rendah mengenai perbankan Islam dengan sumber pengetahuan mereka yang utama adalah akhbar dan televisyen. Sebahagian besar responden tidak yakin perbankan Islam dapat menyaingi perbankan konvensional dan ramai juga responden yang belum menggunakan perbankan Islam turut menyatakan tidak berminat untuk menggunakan perbankan Islam. Kajian rintis ini juga mendapati faktor-faktor penting yang mempengaruhi pelanggan-pelanggan bukan Islam dalam pemilihan bank ialah faedah yang tinggi, tabungan yang selamat, perkhidmatan yang cepat dan efisyen, transakasi yang cepat, dan kualiti perkhidmatan. Produk perbankan Islam yang mendapat sambutan pelanggan bukan Islam ialah akaun simpanan, pelaburan dalam saham dan kad kredit.
An Evaluation of Lecturers Perceptions Towards Research
Izah Mohd Tahir,Nor Mazlina Abu Bakar
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Teaching and research are two main requirements in the job descriptions of university lecturers. Other requirements in the job descriptions include organizing seminars/conferences, presenting papers at national and international levels, publishing papers/articles in refereed journals, publishing books and other scholarly activities. Through research one could acquire knowledge and disseminate to students as well as peers, which finally contribute to building competitive advantage to the university concerned. The current study reports findings from a survey, which examined the perceptions of university lecturers towards research. The findings indicate that research is essential to professional development motivated by getting promotion and salary increment. They also, shed some light on the main barrier for not doing research among university lecturers-poor statistical and econometric skills. Implications and suggestions for future research are also, provided.
Business students’ beliefs in learning mathematics
Izah Mohd. Tahir,Nor Mazlina Abu Bakar
Jurnal Kemanusiaan , 2007,
Abstract: This study explores the students' beliefs in learning mathematics in a university mathematics class. Complete data were collected from three hundred and seventy six students in three higher learning institutions enrolled in the business mathematics subject. The reliability coefficient alpha was 0.80, indicating a high degree of internal consistency for group analyses. A maximum likelihood factor analysis with a varimax rotation yielded four factors: teacher’s role, value, competency and learning. The results indicated that business students appeared to hold positive beliefs in learning mathematics. In addition, teacher’s role was the most important factor, followed by value, learning and competency. The results also indicated that there were significant differences in means between students’ beliefs based on institutions and mathematics grade. However, our results showed no significant differences in means between beliefs based on gender, secondary education and students’ major. The findings of this study could assist the relevant authorities to develop strategic planning to enhance learning mathematics among Malay students. In addition, learning mathematics does not only build students’ ability to think analytically but also develop skills of reasoning and problem solving. These are some of the important elements in environmental management which are invaluable assets to the community.

Studies in Literature and Language , 2011, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320110203.009
Abstract: Indoor or outdoor activities are part of the learning and teaching process. Activities can be of value added to students especially if they perceived positively and appreciate their contents. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of the English camp activities organised by the Faculty of Languages and Communication, University Sultan Zainal Abidin, Terengganu, Malaysia. The evaluations of the activities are based on the course objectives, activities covered and facilitators. In addition, the study also examines the benefits, types of improvement to be considered and the satisfaction level. The study was carried out in May to June 2010. Of 114 students taking TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) from Semester Two and Four, 73 students participated in the survey giving a response rate of 64 percent.

Applying Multiple Linear Regression and Neural Network to Predict Bank Performance
Nor Mazlina Abu Bakar,Izah Mohd Tahir
International Business Research , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ibr.v2n4p176
Abstract: Globalization and technological advancement has created a highly competitive market in the banking and finance industry. Performance of the industry depends heavily on the accuracy of the decisions made at managerial level. This study uses multiple linear regression technique and feed forward artificial neural network in predicting bank performance. The study aims to predict bank performance using multiple linear regression and neural network. The study then evaluates the performance of the two techniques with a goal to find a powerful tool in predicting the bank performance. Data of thirteen banks for the period 2001-2006 was used in the study. ROA was used as a measure of bank performance, and hence is a dependent variable for the multiple linear regressions. Seven variables including liquidity, credit risk, cost to income ratio, size, concentration ratio, inflation and GDP were used as independent variables. Under supervised learning, the dependent variable, ROA was used as the target output for the artificial neural network. Seven inputs corresponding to seven predictor variables were used for pattern recognition at the training phase. Experimental results from the multiple linear regression show that two variables: credit risk and cost to income ratio are significant in determining the bank performance. Two variables were found to explain about 60.9 percent of the total variation in the data with a mean square error (MSE) of 0.330. The artificial neural network was found to give optimal results by using thirteen hidden neurons. Testing results show that the seven inputs explain about 66.9 percent of the total variation in the data with a very low MSE of 0.00687. Performance of both methods is measured by mean square prediction error (MSPR) at the validation stage. The MSPR value for neural network is lower than the MPSR value for multiple linear regression (0.0061 against 0.6190). The study concludes that artificial neural network is the more powerful tool in predicting bank performance.
Influence of Demographic Factors on Students’ Beliefs in Learning Mathematics
Izah Mohd Tahir,Nor Mazlina Abu Bakar
International Education Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ies.v2n3p120
Abstract: Learning mathematics has been recognized by many as important. It does not only develop students’ ability to think in quantitative terms but can also enhance skills such as analytical and problem solving skills. However, to enable us to tell our students how important mathematics is we have to understand students’ beliefs in learning mathematics so as to find ways to improve students’ performance in mathematics. The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between business students’ beliefs in learning mathematics and demographic factors. Data were collected from three hundred and seventy six students in three higher learning institutions enrolled in business mathematics class. Descriptive statistics will be used to describe the sample and Pearson chi-square test will be used to test students’ beliefs and the relationship between students’ beliefs and demographic factors (gender, institutions, previous mathematics grade, secondary education and major). Our results suggest that students’ beliefs are positive and significant in learning mathematics. Using Pearson chi-square test, generally the results suggest that there are significant differences in means between students’ beliefs based on institutions and mathematics grade. In addition, we find that overall there are no significant differences in means between beliefs based on gender, secondary education and major.
Performance Analysis of Manufacturing Companies in Pakistan
Mehran Ali Memon,Izah Mohd Tahir
Business Management Dynamics , 2012,
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to examine the performance of fourteen manufacturing companies in Pakistan using financial accounting ratios. Data was collected from OSIRIS database sorted by total assets. The variables that will be used are: total assets; expenses; sales; profit before tax; and return on assets. Each variable will be compared and analysed during the 5 year-period, 2006-2010. ENGRO being the largest company by total assets over 3 years (2006, 2007 and 2008) had more expenses, low sales, low profit before tax and return on assets compared to the other thirteen companies. FCC being the second largest company by assets showed high sales, profit before tax and return on asset in 5 years (2006-2010). On the other hand, NRL being the fourth largest company showed the highest sales in five years, lowest expenditures in 2010 as compared to other thirteen listed companies but it has decreasing profit before tax and return on asset over the years; lowest profit before tax in 2010. The financial position of other listed companies is mixed. Correlation analysis showed that total assets, sales and profit before tax are positively related indicating economies of scale; large firms are able to take advantage of their size. Finally, this study concluded that higher expenses were the results of either the Expense Preference Behaviour Theory or slow growth rate of investment.

Business Management Dynamics , 2011,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to review previous studies on Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). Previous studies show that empirical works on ERM are still limited. Research using both primary and secondary data will be discussed. From the previous studies, it was found that most of the studies in Malaysia on risk management or ERM used primary data. The scopes of the previous studies in Malaysia include construction, financial institutions, service sector, technology, industrial products, consumer products, plantation and trade and services, and these studies used mail questionnaires and interviews. While studies from the secondary data focus on industrial product companies, of which data are gathered from their annual reports.

International Business and Management , 2010,
Abstract: Ethics on tax evasion has been discussed quite extensively from the theological and philosophical perspective and its impact on the economy. However, very few discuss on the ethical aspects because everyone believes and agrees that tax evasion is unethical. The present study investigates the opinions of accounting and business students related to tax evasion by using a survey instruments consisting of 16 statements. The survey was constructed using a four-point scale and distributed to accounting and business students at Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, Terengganu, Malaysia. 51 accounting students and 33 business students participated in the survey. The statements will be ranked to determine which statements are strongest and which are weakest. Scores will be compared between the two samples to determine whether there were any significant differences in opinions regarding tax evasion between accounting students (BAC) and business students (BBA) and also between gender (male and female). Key words: Ethics; Tax evasion; Business and accounting students
