If you are currently working, what company are you working for? What is your position? Are there any aspects of your job that you could address, positive or negative? Perhaps you can come up with process improvements and solutions.
You are welcome to survey the literature on a business-related topic of interest.
Pick a company to analyze. Perhaps one that you currently work at or interested in working at in the future. Compare and contrast two companies or two industries if you’d like.
Create a business or marketing plan.
Introduce a new product.
-Think about trade stats and demographic information.
-Look at a perspective competitor and what or how they do things.
Try to be specific or at least take a broad subject and narrow down what you will be discussing. If you choose a broad subject to address, understand that you will need to work harder in organizing the structure of your paper. You’ll find a lot of research that is unrelated to the scope of your paper. Too much information may result in an unorganized paper.

POWER POINT PRESENTATION (PART TWO)
You will create a mock presentation that highlights your project’s main points. It will be comprised of approximately 10-15 PowerPoint slides. Each slide should summarize the main points you are making, and additional notes (those details that you would be speaking in your presentation) should be included underneath each slide (in the Notes in PowerPoint: under each slide there is a Click to add notes feature). You should also cite your sources and include a reference slide at the end. Your mock presentation should last approximately 20 minutes (12-15 slides), so ensure that the PowerPoint contains sufficient information to guide you through this presentation.
You can also attach any handouts that you would give to your audience in the presentation. For example: graphs, charts, articles, etc…
Be sure to cite your sources in your presentation and to include a reference slide at the end. If a thought is not your own, you must give credit to the true author. Be sure to use correct parenthetical citations according to APA guidelines.
