CASE ANALYSIS PAPER REQUIREMENTS
A 3-5 page case analysis paper excluding cover page and reference page. One of the most important skills a person can develop is the ability to communicate effectively. As in all business courses, students need to communicate about case background, what are the issues, what happened, discuss issues/solutions in details, what patterns they discovered, and what conclusions may be drawn from their data and the concepts they developed. Students need to link their discussion back to the topics/theories covered in class. Although it is expected that with each case study analysis paper you practice these skills, they are practiced less extensively than with a research paper. A case analysis paper in business is much the same as a term paper in an English class. It should be well written, well organized, and nicely presented.
As explained in the syllabus and in class, you’re to use a business ethics case I provided to you in the course shell or choose one on your own. You should have at least 3 different sources for reference. The textbook should be your first point of reference, of course. In addition to answering the case study analysis, the paper should include basic theory, structures, and diagrams to support your position or point of view.
Suggested Outline for your paper:
· Cover page: Term paper title, course number, names of student and instructor, date, etc.
· Abstract. No more than 300 words
· Table of content, pagination of the document.
· Topic/Issue/Problem Description: Introduction and overview of the problem/issues.
· Discussions: Fundamental analysis with details and graphs/diagrams where applicable.
· Conclusion: Sum it all up and state what you have learned/explain your position.
· References: List of references with standard formats and appropriate citations in the text.
