A Prickly Partnership for Uber and Google - About Business Degrees | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

When Google’s venture capital arm poured more than $250 million into Uber in 2013, it looked like a match made in tech heaven.


Google, with billions of dollars in the bank and house-by-house maps of most of the planet, seemed like the perfect partner for Uber, the hugely popular ride-hailing service.

Bliss between the Internet titan and the hot young company, however, has proved fleeting.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

The Major Disadvantage Plaguing the Smallest Businesses

The Major Disadvantage Plaguing the Smallest Businesses | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

The smallest of businesses have a harder time being approved for loans than their larger counterparts, a recent survey says.

According to the survey, released Thursday by four regional Federal Reserve Banks, 52 percent of businesses with revenue under $250,000 a year said they were rejected for a loan during the first half of 2014. Half of businesses with revenue between $250,000 and $1 million also couldn't get a loan.

Bigger companies fared better. Loans were approved for 80 percent of businesses that made $10 million or more and 78 percent of businesses that made between $1 million and $10 million.

The worth of a degree - Masters and PhDs

The worth of a degree - Masters and PhDs | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

What is the worth of a degree? Some commentators maintain that degrees are a waste of time and money. It is certainly true that they are expensive in the US and many students find themselves to be in serious debt at the end of their studies. So is it worthwhile getting a degree?

The answer to this question depends on how you define ‘worth’. If you define it in terms of getting a job, then as the BLS analysis shows, you are more likely to be unemployed without a degree. If you define ‘worth’ in terms of earning potential, then you are more likely to earn more with a degree than without one. So, if worth is measured by earnings and employment prospects, then numerically a degree looks worthwhile.

A customer in Spokane, Wash., said the cable-TV giant changed his first name on his bill and his online account after he canceled his cable service because of financial hardships. A worker substituted his actual first name, Ricardo, with a vulgarity in its billing system.
