ABSTRACT The following guidelines are for the written report requirements for the research project assignment in MBA 6610 (Dr. Carlson). Each of the major components are identified and discussed. Students are expected to address the major topics within each section. Should any not be covered, the student is expected to justify the decision to drop the topic to the satisfaction of the instructor. These criteria for each section will be used as checklists of content requirements for grading purposes in combination with the grading rubrics included in the syllabus. The format of this document provides a model of the required format of the final report submission of the student. These requirements include: a.) signature page, b.) title page, c.) abstract, d.) table of contents, e.) body of the report, f.) references and appendices. While the course syllabus does not state an absolute page requirement, it is expected that the report will cover at least 20-25 pages specifically addressing the body of the report and does not include any other pages listed above.

    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.
