The following questions cover the first 4 chapters of your textbook-and the Entrepreneurial Marketing” construct article I assigned in the first class; there are 5 critical thinking questions to be answered, each worth 20 points. I will post the slides from our most recent class later today, but the basic information you need to answer these questions can be found in the readings assigned to date. Your answers do not need to be more than a paragraph or two-so assume about 250 words per answer. Please double space your answers to make it easier for me to read. It will be helpful if you cite the source of your answer, and I will give you partial credit. I am not fussy about the citation format you use, but please do not try to present someone else’s work as your own. All academic integrity policies are in effect for this exam. To complete this assessment, I’d suggest downloading this word document, adding your name and section, saving it as a word document under the title “studentnamemktgassessment” so that I have your name and the assignment in the document title. You can type your answers in the space under the question, then resave your answers. When you are done, you must submit this assessment via the dropbox in blackboard. 1.
