MBA Degree Programs ? Project Guidelines

 

Introduction

 

In fulfillment of their MBA degree requirements, American Graduate University (AGU) degree

 

candidates have to complete a project. The project requires students to combine their academic

 

experience with their life and business experience and successfully develop and implement a

 

new effort in a real business situation.

 

Definition

 

The project, as defined by AGU, is the development, implementation, documentation and

 

analysis of a new business undertaking. Examples might be the development of a business plan

 

for a new business unit, the development and implementation of a contract analysis and

 

negotiating position, the development of a program or project plan, or the development and

 

implementation of a new business process. Projects are limited only by the innovation and

 

resources of individual students.

 

It must be stressed that the project is a real activity, not a purely academic process; it is not a

 

traditional master?s thesis. Students may petition for a project that is purely academic in nature,

 

such as the development of a computer model for a specified business operation, but all such

 

requests must pass the University?s review process.

 

Project Proposal

 

The first step in the project approval process is the project proposal. Degree candidates must

 

petition the University for project approval using the Project Request Form found on the AGU

 

website in the Forms section of the Student Center. This communication should contain a short

 

description of the project. The registrar will open a project file for the student and assign a

 

project file number.

 

The Registrar will forward the student?s request to the Vice President, Academic Affairs who will

 

review the request and approve it or request additional information on the topic. At this time the

 

student will be assigned a faculty advisor.

 

Within 21 days of being notified, candidates must submit a detailed project proposal outlining

 

the project. Project proposals must include a detailed explanation of the project to include:

 

Purpose of the Project ? This element is the basis for the project and outlines what the project

 

intends to accomplish and its business purpose.

 

Background of the Project ? This element covers why the project is important in the short or

 

long term success of the business or government organization. What goals can be expected to be

 

reached? 1 Research ? What needs to be known? How will the information be obtained? What methods will

 

be used?

 

Schedule ? What milestones must be reached? At what milestone will the project be

 

implemented or completed?

 

Results and Benefits ? What specific results and benefits are anticipated? How will they be

 

measured?

 

If the project is assigned as part of the student?s regular business activities, or will become part of

 

a business, a letter from the candidate?s immediate supervisor approving the effort is mandatory.

 

Projects that do not directly affect a current business activity will require a defense by the student

 

as to the importance of the project as related to the education of the student or to the body of

 

knowledge of the project?s subject area.

 

Project Guidelines

 

Although all projects are unique, they will include some required elements. Each project will be

 

designed in conjunction with the faculty advisor and must meet the approval of the evaluation

 

committee.

 

A sample outline for the project report is furnished below. Also, the student is referred to the

 

chapter on ?Presenting Insights and Findings: Written and Oral Reports,? in the Course 653 text,

 

Business Research Methods. An additional source is the ?Research Project Guide? on the Oxford

 

University website at:

 

http://global.oup.com/uk/orc/busecon/business/brymanbrm3e/01student/proj

 

ect_guide/

 

Project Report (Sample Outline) Title Page Executive Summary Table of Contents List of Figures List of Tables Introduction Purpose of project Describe the problem Why is this analysis appropriate? Importance of the problem The scope of the review How the results of the review will be applied Identify the research questions you hope to answer

 

2 Methodology Identify the method used to identify and locate sources Explain the rationale used for selecting the sources to analyze Explain the procedures to be used for analyzing the sources Identify the criteria for evaluating the information found Analysis and Discussion (general points to consider) Present evidence and ideas from sources Concepts are organized by sub-topics Sources are grouped by concepts instead of individual entities Grouping may be related to research questions Validity of sources is stated to support your ultimate answers to your questions Cite each of your statements by placing the number(s) identifying the reference(s)

 

which support your statement Conclusions and Recommendations Identify and synthesize findings Systematically answer your research questions Provide recommendations for:

 

o Future research

 

o Applications

 

o Policies and procedures

 

o Program revisions

 

o Other warranted situations References List each of your references using APA format (www.apastyle.org), or as close to it

 

as you can get Number each of your references so you can cite your evidence in the Analysis and

 

Discussion section. This is a sample format. Students may use another similar format. However, students should use

 

the APA style as much as possible for headings, margins, references, etc.

 

The body of the project report must be from 30 to 50 pages in length. This does not include the

 

Title Page, Table of Contents, List of Figures, List of Tables, References or Appendices. 3 Project Schedule

 

Like all business endeavors, the project must have a realistic schedule that also dovetails with the

 

120-day project schedule. Projects needing greater time periods may be too extensive for the

 

educational goals of the student and University.

 

The schedule, with major milestones, must be submitted to the faculty advisor within 21 days of

 

the project?s approval. Each part of the project ? each milestone, each project chapter, or each

 

section ? must be submitted to the faculty advisor for approval as they are completed. Students

 

may, of course, continue project work while the advisor is reviewing the project submissions.

 

Each project section will not be considered finished until the section has been approved by the

 

faculty advisor.

 

It may be that there will be faculty changes or suggestions that will be returned to students for

 

evaluation and revision. Where appropriate, these changes must be instituted before the section is

 

considered complete. All project sections must be completed before the project can be considered

 

completed and credit earned. Following successful completion of the project, the student may

 

petition for award of degree.

 

The difficulty of a project often leads to students underestimating the amount of time needed to

 

complete. In certain instances, students may petition for additional time to complete the project.

 

Such requests are not granted automatically, and students must prove that the additional time is

 

needed due to business situations, rather than lack of planning or underestimation of resources by

 

the student.

 

The goal of the University is not to force students to conform to a specific schedule for

 

completion, but rather to avoid projects stretching out to unmanageable lengths. That is why the

 

University forces a realistic evaluation of projects prior to approval.

 

Submission Of Copies

 

Following completion of the project, the student is required to submit the project in a

 

professional format. The final document will be archived in the University?s library. The

 

University reserves the right to cite and quote from the final document, and to review the project

 

in its publications.

 

Faculty Advisor

 

Since all projects are unique, much project design and structure will be developed with the

 

faculty advisor. Students will be able to communicate with their advisor by e-mail, or depending

 

on the schedule of the faculty member, by phone. Direct meetings with the faculty advisor are

 

desired, but all expenses associated with such meetings are borne by the student.

 

Questions

 

Any questions concerning these guidelines should be addressed to: AGU Faculty Project

 

Committee, or the designated faculty advisor. Phone: (626) 966-4576, Ext. 1006; FAX (626)
