Career Progression in Management and Leadership
Applied Project (term-paper): Students will create an applied project based on an
administration/management issue relevant to their currrent (or former) workplace or profession.
It should be an examination of an issue that is relevant to operational practice and performance
which has a potential solution. From that perspective, the paper should be prepared as if it was
an internal consulting report to be presented to the organization’s decision makers. This project
should include componenets from every ADM course the student took in the program i.e, “in my
Labor Relations course we studied the importance of negotiation, arbitration and mediation in
negotiations. One potential solution to this situation would be to involve a mediator.” The paper
is a minimum of 15 pages with at least five (5) scholarly references from peer reviewed sources.
