In the literature, special attention is paid to the entrepreneurship development and its impact on the economic growth and economic development of the transition countries. However, insufficient attention is paid to economic growth as a factor of the entrepreneurship development in transition countries. The purpose of the paper is to analyze the impact of economic growth on the entrepreneurship development in the Republic of Serbia and its regions. The results indicated that there is a statistically significant negative correlation between the gross domestic product (GDP) and the number of entrepreneurs as well as between GDP per capita and the number of entrepreneurs in the Republic of Serbia. Also, the results indicated that GDP per capita has a significant impact on the development of female entrepreneurship in the Republic of Serbia.</p> 2019-06-11T12:43:49+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fashion Product Development Process with Reference to Women's Participation 2019-10-22T13:35:11+00:00 Milica Slijepčević Karolina Perčić <p><em>The process of the development of new fashion clothing requires all actors in the process to invest tremendous effort in order for the right model to reach its customer at the right time and in the right place.

Yusuff <p>Land is an essential commodity everywhere in the world, for people who use it mainly as a source of livelihood, either for farming or other subsistence purposes. Land becomes a quintessential means of survival and even a natural entitlement for them and their families. Women who are the primary users of land for farming faces challenges on owning landed properties as a result of their gender.&nbsp; Women, frequently and systematically lack access to land rights in many countries. Yet, land rights are keys for a life with dignity; they are the basis for entitlements which can ensure an adequate standard of living and economic independence and thus, personal freedom. This study therefore aims at examining land ownership patterns and livelihood of women in Ado-Odo local government of Ogun state. The paper was hinged on &nbsp;Social exclusion and feminist theory. Method of data collections was triangulated. Five hundred questionnaires were distributed to participants through multistage sampling technique. While indepth interviewed were conducted for twenty respondents that were purposively picked. Quantitative data was analysed using simple percentage and frequency distribution. Hypothesis was tested with chi-square method. Qualitative data was analyzed through content analysis and ethnographic summaries. Findings from the study revealed that patterns of land ownership in Ado-Odo local government affects women livelihoods and that majority of women respondents want change, as they narrated their challenges as regards patterns of land ownership.&nbsp; The paper recommends that for women to have full access and rights to ownership of lands there is need to deconstruct, re-construct, and re-conceptualize customary law notions as they pertain to issues of land inheritance by women. This is important for sustainable development in Ogun state, Nigeria.</p> 2019-06-11T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Preparation of Future Teachers at Vocational Secondary Schools and Financial Literacy 2019-10-22T13:35:12+00:00 Daniela Petríkova Tatiana Varadyová <p><em>The aim of this paper is to find out how to motivate future teachers of vocational subjects to implement financial literacy as a natural part of the teaching process. If a teacher does not have a positive attitude towards economics, it is challenging for him to include the proper activities in the field of financial literacy into the process of teaching vocational subjects. The education of future teachers in this field has a wide scope for improvement and implementation of new trends. The purpose of the paper is to examine the initial experiences of introducing the topic Financial Literacy into the training of future teachers in vocational subjects at secondary vocational schools which are taught at the Technical University in Košice (the course of additional pedagogical study). Financial Literacy was the part of a compulsory subject called Didactics in Vocational Subjects, which aimed to determine the awareness of students about the document The National Standard of Financial Literacy in a sample of 67 students. The participants used the document and its attachments in practice. Our results point out that most students did not know about the existence of the document and that none of the students had ever worked with the document before. An incompatibility between the document and its attachments makes difficult to implement financial literacy into the teaching process at secondary vocational schools. In the paper, we present an overview of some methods that shift the problem of financial literacy to a practical level.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2019-06-11T12:18:33+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Assessing Institutional Founding Sources and Challenges Facing Women Entrepreneurs in Nigeria 2019-10-22T13:35:13+00:00 Ann Terngu Makar Vandefan <p>This paper examines the institutional and other funding sources available for women entrepreneurs in Nigeria and the challenges faced by them in accessing these funds.The paper reveals various policies from previous governments that were aimed at exposing women entrepreneurs in Nigeria to funds through establishment of microcredit institutions in realization of the pivotal role women have in economic development most especially in small scale enterprises within ruler communities</p> 2019-06-11T12:11:16+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Being A Female Entrepreneur - Case Study 2019-10-22T13:35:09+00:00 Victoria Burgess <p>The purpose of this study was to explain the factors which make an impact on the success of female CEOs.&nbsp; This paper takes a broad look as to what it takes to gain substantial promotions leading to executive positions, and therefore the rise in numbers.&nbsp; This is then followed by an interview with the Sr. Vice President of Sales at ESPN.&nbsp; Lastly is a look at suggestions as to why there is a sudden decrease.</p> 2019-06-11T12:46:06+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
