“Management Who’s Who.” Many business college students are no doubt aware that business colleges are named after historical figures. Joseph Wharton (University of Pennsylvania) and Alfred Sloan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) may be well known, but who was Amos Tuck (Dartmouth) M.J. Neely (Texas Christian), Max M. Fisher (Ohio State), McDonough (Georgetown), or Cox (Southern Methodist)? Use the Internet to locate a recent ranking of business colleges. Pick ten schools that are not named for their Institution (as opposed to Columbia School of Business and Harvard Business School) Use the Internet to find out who the colleges are named for and those persons’ contribution to business, management, or business education.
CASE STUDY GUIDELINES:
Each individual student will prepare a 1,200-words typewritten analysis of the “Case” provided in your syllabus for each chapter. The analysis should be in summary form. Please adhere to the stated Rubric below for what is expected of the assignment:
1. Identify and summarize any key point(s) or problem(s) presented in the Case.
2. If the case presents questions to be answered, address each question thoroughly in narrative form.
3. Describe at minimum five principles from the associated chapter (chapter covered for the week) that can be applied to the case. Please make sure you bold the principles/terms.
4. Try to relate some important concepts to your own experience.
5. Give examples from your own experience that either reinforce or go against the case.
6. Describe how a Manager/Supervisor can use and apply what you learned from your readings that can be applied to the case.
