An important component of any business degree should include the acquisition of research skills so that students are able to generate new knowledge and to communicate findings to others.
By the end of class you have learned to write more effectively, document correctly, and present efficiently so that conducting research and writing research reports such as this are not so daunting. Most importantly, you should learn to embrace the process of research as a journey that you will engage in for the rest of your life.
