    An Economic Analysis of Climate Variability, Adaptation, and Profitability in the U.S. Ski Industry by Sheridan, Samuel George

    Climate variability is threatening businesses that rely on outdoor environments for recreational use. Despite awareness of the negative economic impacts of climate change, its effects on the U.S. ski industry have only recently been studied in more detail. This thesis aims to assess how the United States ski industry is adapting business strategy to climate variability. Using OLS regression, this study shows that adaptation strategies such as snow making are profitable to resorts and could be the answer in larger scale adaptation. Other strategies include regional and business diversification to hedge against the impending effects of climate variability.

    The business of fine art : does marketing help the fine artist become successful? by Tappe, Caroline , Tappé, Caroline

    Currently, there is little information around the benefits of marketing, in respect to the fine art profession. Artists are often averse to marketing due to personality type, lack of marketing education, and the sporadic methods to success in the fine art industry. This study examines the factors that help the career of the artist, with an emphasis on marketing. Fine artists are interviewed to gather information qualitatively, and are further analyzed to articulate the contributing factors to success. Overall, the data suggests marketing as a beneficial implementation to the career of the fine artist, along with support and motivation.
