This ninth issue contains seven articles dealing with research, theory, trends and issues, curriculum, teaching methodology, technology, and personal/professional development. "Attitudes of FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) Students toward Traditional Business Values and the American Economic System" (Inder P. Nijihawan, Richard S. Ellis) suggests that FBLA members demonstrated less than affirmative attitudes toward economic and business issues than expected based on their training and economic education. "Business Education in Cohorts: Does Familiarity Breed Learning?" (Katherine C. Reynolds, Sri Sitharaman) reports that significant differences appear in greater affective learning among students in cohort programs. "Building Effective Workforce Development Systems: Core Principles" (Reid A. Bates) describes a set of 10 principles guiding the development of high-performance workforce development systems. "Dispositions Toward Critical Thinking Related to Analytical Writing" (Barbara A. Wilson) reports a study that found a relationship between the California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory and analytical writing. "U.S. Corporate and Public Organizational Uses of Communication Systems" (Jensen J. Zhao et al.) describes research that found that, although corporate and public organizations used similar types of communication systems, significant differences existed between them in the frequencies of using traditional paper-based and computerized communication systems for business activities. "Issues and Innovations in the Implementation and Delivery of Internet- and Intranet-Based Instruction" (Martha Lair Sale et al.) discusses the expanded role of such instruction at the university level; provides descriptions and examples of various resource guides for both the learner and the instructor; and provides implementation tips for the instructor of a net-based course. "Teaching Ethics in the Information Systems Curriculum: A Pragmatic, Values-Based Approach" (Marc Lampe, Gary P. Schneider) discusses techniques instructors currently use to teach ethics to business students and presents alternative strategies that can be more effective in encouraging students to exhibit ethical behavior in their future careers.
