This course is designed to provide students with an opportunity to solve a real-life problem for a local employer in a global context, by applying theory and skills developed in previous courses. Working in small teams, and supervised by a faculty member, students will conduct secondary and primary research, develop and evaluate alternative solutions, and present a final recommendation to the employer. The final report will summarize the methodology and approach taken, justify the reasons for selecting the specific solution, and outline a practical work plan for implementing the proposed solution, including estimated timeline and budget. The students’ work will be formally assessed by their supervisor and the employer, and informally by their classmates.
