Economics & Management - Case Study - Exercise/Lab (TI.IE.SHOK)

The purpose of this lab is to lend a practical aspect to the theoretical foundations of the Economics and Business Management seminar. Case studies and exercises (assignments) highlight applications needed for you and your team to construct and pitch an original business plan.

You are explicitly encouraged to be creative and innovative in your efforts.  Each plan requires a unique approach to the industry you are in, the market you intend to serve and your financial needs.
 

The lab sessions will serve as a meeting point for your team (where your participation and attendance - at least 80% - is required) and a chance to get guidance from your instructor. At the end of the semester, in a role-play scenario, you will pitch your ideas to your peers and a panel of investors ('Sharks') and formally submit your business plan. You must 'pass' this lab in order to be permitted to take the exam.
