You may pick any industry you wish as long as it can be researched and is pertinent to business and/or economics. This may seem a bit broad, but it allows for maximum creativity. Some guidelines you may want to follow…

  • Make sure there is sufficient information on the industry. Otherwise you won’t be able to find what you are looking for. In that regard, publicly-traded companies in known industries are your best bet.
  • Understand the topic at hand. If you don’t know what you are talking about, then you won’t do a good job.
  • Develop a good, solid literature review in advance of finding your subject. Go out and find what others are saying.
  • Other guidelines are below.
  • All papers must be in APA format and follow all APA guidelines.
  • 10 TO 12 pages in length.

    1. Cover page must have an abstract explaining what the paper is about.
