Participation in the discussion boards is mandatory and is expected to lead to high collaborative learning. Students will choose from the assigned topics and will be required to find an article in the popular business press (e.g. Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Fortune, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, etc.) from within the last 6 months relevant to the topic of the chapter reading for that week.
You will be required to write a short summary of the article on the respective discussion forum week, and explain how it applies to the course material for that topic of the week. In your summary, explain major laws, government regulations, and/or public policy that affect the business behavior; and how the business influences regulations and/or the political process.
