The Behavioural Aspects of Financial Literacy
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-09) Gerth, Florian; Lopez, Katia; Reddy, Krishna; Ramiah, Vikash; Wallace, Damien; Muschert, Glenn; Frino, Alex; Jooste, Leonie
In this paper, we investigate the contribution of behavioural characteristics to the financial literacy of UAE residents after controlling for demographic factors. Specifically, we test the relationship between financial literacy and behavioural biases such as representativeness, self-serving, overconfidence, loss aversion, and hindsight bias. Using data collected through survey questionnaires, we apply the methodology developed by the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to compute financial literacy scores. Our overall results show that all behavioural biases except for overconfidence bias are positively related to financial literacy. Furthermore, some biases exhibit a stronger quantitative relationship with financial literacy than others. For example, hindsight bias displays the strongest link to financial literacy, followed by self-serving bias. The weakest but still statistically significant effect is loss aversion bias. Although biases, in general, have negative connotations, behavioural biases appear to be related to higher levels of financial literacy. © 2021 by the authors.

The EMI policy in UAE universities and its impact on arab students' identity and faith in their academic Arabic
(Springer, 2020-11-05) Masri, Taghreed
In the UAE, the adoption of EMI policy is being carried out in higher education without problematization. This study aims to assess the preferences of Arab students regarding their favored language of instruction. It also aims to examine how they perceive their Arab identity after studying in EMI universities. The study is based on a critical theoretical framework. A sequential mixed-methods approach of quantitative and qualitative data collection was used. Qualitative thematic analysis was carried out to analyze interviews while quantitative data analysis was used to analyze survey data. The participants were UAE University students whose first language is Arabic. The findings showed that many of them seem to have lost their faith in Arabic as a language of academia and see EMI as the normal MI, although they still consider academic Arabic an essential part of their identity, which raises questions about their sense of self-worth and self-esteem. © The Author(s) 2020.
