The researchers have theoretically conceptualised and tested for statistical analysis. Questionnaires were distributed among the target population, and 233 respondents returned the questionnaire. A closed-ended questionnaire was used for data collection, and a non-probability convenience sampling technique was used. Moreover, collected data was refined using screening tests, and the theoretical model was statistically tested through Structural Equation Model (SEM). The results revealed mediated relationship between service quality and service satisfaction. This study supports service culture as a potent mediator in service satisfaction in higher educational contexts. Hence, service culture bridges quality and satisfaction in the service domain. Besides academicians, this study focuses on not only the service quality but also gives close attention to service culture so that customers can be satisfied widely. Additionally, this research fulfils the theoretical gap by introducing the service culture as a mediator that may lead to a new perspective in service marketing. Other researchers may contribute to this theory by employing other research methods and techniques in different service industry fields.</p> Muhamamd Zahid Maitlo Dr Sumaiya Syed Mumtaz Ali Umme Kusloom Abbasi Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Emerging Business and Economic Trends 2022-12-30 2022-12-30 1 2 78 93 Profitability Analysis of the Public and Private Banks in Pakistan <p>The central theme of this study is to examine the profitability and comparison between the public and private sector banks. For this purpose, bank-specific variables are taken (size, capital, advance, deposits) and macroeconomic variables, such as GDP, as these factors affected banks' profitability in Pakistan from 2009 to 2013. For measuring the banks’ profitability, ROA and ROE were used. In this study, we tested that the profitability of private banks is higher than that of public banks in terms of ROA and ROE. The data was collected from the state bank of Pakistan’s financial statements. A total of ten banks were selected, five from each public and private sector.</p> Bilawal Ali Dayo Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Emerging Business and Economic Trends 2022-12-30 2022-12-30 1 2 94 104 Assessing the Adoption of Learning Management Systems (LMS) in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) of Sindh <p>The study aims to explore the effect of all essential factors of the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT-2) to adopt Learning Management Systems (LMS) used among higher education institutes in Sindh.

With the help of social networking, female entrepreneurs have found a new and effective way to run their businesses.

Many female entrepreneurs run their online pages for buying and selling either independently or through some social media community which connects them to their customers directly. Whether it is a make-up artist or cook, a buyer of imported makeup or even a freelancer, social media has given a platform to female entrepreneurs to connect easily to customers directly with no intermediate. This research can contribute to taking measures towards female entrepreneurship growth as the results show a positive relationship between promotion, work-life balance, customer relationship management and female entrepreneurial growth through social media. This research shows evidence that social media has contributed a lot to female entrepreneurs by providing them with a platform through which they can efficiently run a business.

Using the quantitative method, dyadic data were collected from 265 sales subordinates and their 84 managers working in different companies. In this model, as an exchange relationship, sales subordinates show ambidextrous behaviour under the mechanism of felt trust and quality LMX. Similarly, sales managers gain consistent performance and professional collaboration with their subordinates after establishing a trustworthy environment using the developmental EPM. This unique framework offers a win-win situation for managers and subordinates by suggesting a favourable linkage among study variables.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Farooque Ahmed Shuaib Ahmed Soomro Naveed Akhtar Qureshi Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Emerging Business and Economic Trends 2022-12-30 2022-12-30 1 2 125 143
