"Each student chooses a (real) company as a Personal Case Study to contribute to course discussions. That is, students investigate company cases through the many conceptual lenses provided regarding business-government relations in the course. Each student is welcome to select companies in any industry sector, such as but not limited to automobiles, consumer goods, energy, fashion, food services, healthcare, information and communication technology, retail services. American and non-US-based companies are welcome personal case selections. Each students submits two, two-page, single-spaced, Personal Company Cases.
