A Comparison between Perception of Risk and Willingness to Serve Genetically Modified Foods AgEcon
Nganje, William E.; Wachenheim, Cheryl J.; Lesch, William C..
The dichotomy between perceptions of the acceptability of risk associated with genetically modified (GM) foods and willingness to consume GM foods is investigated. Results indicate that some consumers are willing to consume GM foods even though they may perceive such foods as somewhat unsafe, with determinants such as self-perceived knowledge about the availability of GM foods and altruistic motives having positive and significant effects on their consumption decisions. Efforts toward decreasing perception of risk and ultimately increasing acceptance of and demand for GM foods should address issues related to their altruistic characteristics and outrage.

ASSESSING NEW-GRADUATE APPLICANTS: ACADEMIC PERCEPTIONS AND AGRIBUSINESS REALITIES AgEcon
Wachenheim, Cheryl J.; Lesch, William C..
This study empirically compares the level of importance assigned to the knowledge, skills, and experiences of applicants for entry-level positions by members of the agribusiness community and how these criteria were perceived by chairpersons of departments of agricultural economics. Chairpersons had a good understanding of criteria important to employers in evaluating applicants and how they prioritize these criteria. Communication and interpersonal skills were ranked as the most important criteria by both groups. Industry members assigned lower levels of importance for formal international training, an attribution largely shared by academic counterparts.

U.S. Executives' Views on International Agribusiness Education in the United States: An IAMA Membership Survey AgEcon
Wachenheim, Cheryl J.; Lesch, William C..
Industry members of the International Agribusiness Management Association were surveyed regarding agribusiness education. Respondents agreed that an ability to communicate and work with others are the most important skills for new graduates to possess. Skills and experiences related to international business were considered less important. Most respondents indicated that they do or are willing to assist the academic community with curricular design or implementation. Viewpoints of firms more actively involved in the academic curriculum concerning student qualifications and design of an international study program differed from those of other firms that also employ new graduates, but were not so engaged.
