MGMT 301 Business Information Project Guidelines MGMT 301 FA18 Business Information Project: Company and Industry Research/Analysis Deliverable: 2-3 Page Report Written in Your Own Words The Course Manager Will Provide Your Project Timeline and Your Assigned Fortune 1000 Company Overview: The Business Information Project is designed to introduce you to authoritative business information sources and connect you to Penn State “ Research Consultants ” housed in Penn State’s University Libraries system. Project: Every MGMT 301 student has been assigned a unique Fortune 1000 company to research and analyze. The project first entails your learning to access information from selected web and database resources. Second, you will compile your information and write , in your own words , a 2-3 page report (no fewer than 2 and no more than 3 pages), based on the information in these guidelines . Third, you will submit that report as either a .doc or a .docx file via the Business Information Project assignment in Canvas (in the MGMT 301 course). Due Date and Submission: The table below details each team’s assignment submission window (each team will have three full weeks to complete this project; late submission = zero points for this assignment). You are assigned to teams only in that this is how the class is divided to stagger start and end dates for this project; this is NOT a team project . All students must work only with their individually assigned Fortune 1000 company and must submit individual projects . You must upload your file via the Canvas assignment as noted in these guidelines; do NOT copy/paste your document’s text into the assignment’s comments box, and do NOT email your project to anyone on the Teaching Team. Any file type other than .doc or .docx will not be accepted (you will receive an error message from Canvas if you try to upload any other file type in the assignment). If you do not use Microsoft Word and do not know how to save your document as a .doc or .docx file, you may wish to visit one of Penn State’s IT Service Desk locations for technical help well in advance of the due date in order to learn how to submit an acceptable file. You are responsible for being able to submit your project properly. Team Fall 2018 Project Start Date Submission Window Opens at 8:00 AM Fall 2018 Project End Date Submission Window Closes at 5:00 PM late = zero points* 1 October 1 (Monday) October 19 (Friday) 2 October 22 (Monday) November 9 (Friday) *Note: Any project not submitted according to these guidelines during the appropriate assignment submission window will earn a grade of zero. Waiting until the end of the final day of your assignment submission window is taking a significant risk; “technical difficulties” are NOT an acceptable reason for failing to submit your project properly and on time .
