Twice this term you will asked to complete a current event analysis. Choose an article on which to provide analysis and reflection. You must select an article that was featured in the print edition (e.g. blogs that are hosted by The Wall Street Journal are not acceptable). Each current event sumbission should include the following: 1) summary, 2) the key strategic issues, (3) theory or models from this course or other business school courses that help structure analysis of the information provided in the article, (4) your original analysis of the situation (not a summary of the facts or analysis provided in the article!), and (5) recommendations to the top management team of the company(ies) discussed in the article. The grade will be determined by the quality of your analysis, including answering the appropriate additional questions, as well as the quality of the chosen articles. Only articles from the print edition of Wall Street Journal are acceptable for this assignment. Analysis should take AT LEAST 3 pages, 12-point Times New Roman font, 1 inch margins, double-spaced. Also, scan/photocopy the printed article and include this on the last page (as proof of print edition, not necessarily for professor to read).
