Business Case – Research
related to higher education trends suggest college students do not read
course textbooks and other assigned course content. Drawing from this
literature, business research suggest this might provide a reason for
undergraduate business majors “gaps” in terms of not understanding their
discipline/declared major specific knowledge and skills expected by
industry. Some examples of these “knowledge/skill gaps” include but are
not limited to: preparing routine business - written documents or
presentations, utilizing specific knowledge/skills related to team-based
projects and demonstrating an awareness of workplace issues
related to their declared majors, e.g. generations, technological,
cultures, genders, etc., which might impede business communications or
performance on team-based projects.

industry expected skills. Your team can investigate using (national)
data about graduating undergraduate business majors -or- specific

neutral. Make sure to provide evidence to support your position from
secondary and/or primary sources.
primary sources - given the mixture of declared majors assigned to
teams in this course – it is acceptable to use a mixture of examples
from team members/ declared majors –or- if your team include members
with the same major –use the team’s specific major.
