WK 8 End of Semester Project - due December 2, 2021


Project: The end-of-semester project will be an individual assignment that requires students to integrate ideas from the course with real-world business challenges. It may be a memo, short research paper or case. The instructor will provide details in class and on Blackboard.

Presentation: Each student or group of students will present at least one case analysis. Presentations are brief summaries of the students’ case analysis supplemented with visual aids. Students should be able to demonstrate professional presentation skills and the ability to “think on their feet” by answering questions about the case.

Case Studies: Students will complete approximately six case analyses in small groups. Case analyses are designed to demonstrate your understanding of the course concepts, with emphasis on what the concepts look like in real-world contexts. Additional emphasis is placed on problem-solving, and professional-quality communication.
