BA 385: Business Environment Instructions for The Case Study Analysis / Term Paper This case study analysis is the term paper assignment mentioned in the syllabus. Due: The case study analysis/term paper is due Thursday, 11/13/14, (Week 7) at the beginning of the class. Commonly students say they did not allow sufficient time for this assignment. Start early. Format: Use the case study analysis template provided to you as a separate attachment along with these instructions; it may have some slight revisions from the one you were given earlier in the quarter. Do not alter this format ; type directly onto the template after the ¶ sign. Leave the footnotes in the paper . Single-space. You may double-space between bullet-points and paragraphs, if you wish. The analysis should be as long as is necessary to write the quality of term paper that you desire. There is no maximum page length. Most likely, however, the term paper will need to be 9 - 14 pages (or more) in length (including the nearly 6 pages of the template). Quality ( i.e ., grades) and length do not directly correlate. Turn in a hard copy, but maintain an electronic copy until after you have received a grade for the course . Case Study Selection: All members of the BA 385 class will conduct an analysis on the same case study—“BP and the Deepwater Horizon Disaster.” This is an important and well known incident that contains many of the themes of this course in the Business Environment. The case study will be a separate attachment along with this document . Note that the case study is a pdf file. It is 19 pages long with another 9 pages of appendices and exhibits. Limit your analysis to the material in the case study. Do not do additional research (except, you may do 5 minutes of research on the authors, if you wish). You cannot find the answers to the template questions on the Internet. 1 Suggestions: 1 1 “(1) Academic dishonesty. Academic dishonesty is the act of knowingly or intentionally seeking to claim credit for the work or effort of another person or participation in such acts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
