SPRING 2018

MSC 300 is an Inquiry course, which requires a special research project as part of its curriculum.

Choose any business-related paper from the general business journal literature (accounting, sales, marketing,

operations research/analytics, business medical services, business software development, etc.) Suitable journals

include Harvard Business Review, CrossTalk, Interfaces, University of Chicago Journal of Business, etc. Not

acceptable publications are popular magazine articles, trade association magazine articles, or newspaper

articles. Meet with the instructor if there are any questions about the suitability of the paper and source.

i.

Make a copy of the journal paper and attach to the back of your critique. Include a page

showing the Cover and Table of Contents from the journal you chose.

ii.

Write an explanation of the hypothesis the author was testing in plain English. Use of

statistical symbols such as ho will not be acceptable. Assume your audience is middle

management who are not experts in statistical methods.

agree or disagree with the conclusions and/or methods used by the author.
