Each student will be required to produce a 15-20 page (double-spaced) final paper connecting to the theoretical and/or methodological interests of the course. As an example of this project, reflect on some of the business examples and business issues presented in the class. Is there a business that requires a transformation in its system technology and design? Is there a way to make the business more efficient and perhaps safe using business information systems such as CRM, security or even producing a cyber hacking policy? Please use the course text and lecture materials as your guide. I have intentionally left considerable room for choice here, and ALL students are strongly encouraged to consult with me as early as possible in developing a topic.
By no later than the XXYY and MMDDYYY course, I’d like to see a formal proposal for the final paper which includes: a 1-2 paragraph description of the main argument or question of the paper; an outline of the anticipated structure and sequence of the paper; a description of the empirical evidence (if any) you plan to use; and a list of 5-10 published sources you plan to cite or draw on in making your argument.
During the course you will also be turning in drafts of the paper so that there is less chance to “cram” the final paper. The drafts allow you to develop your interests, refine the topic and give you enough time to complete the paper timely.
Final papers will be due, in electronic form, and submitted into Canvas no later than midnight MMDDYYY. Per standard university guidelines governing plagiarism and academic honesty, all work for the course is expected to be original or appropriately acknowledged.
