Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar forms part of the Major. Students will prepare and present their reports on subtopics pertaining to the seminar's overarching theme (the latter will be announced closer to the kick-off meeting on 18 October 2018, 9.45am (SR 5).
Introduce students to the analytical concepts necessary to understand and analyze different business models in different contexts
Improve students' presentations skills by receiving detailed feed-back
Enable students to write a group/individual paper on a predetermined topic

Assessment and permitted materials

Your final grade will be determined based on three components:
Class participation,
group report,
presentation of your report in class

Teams of two (max three students) will work jointly on pre-assigned subjects (to be announced during the kick-off meeting, date tbc). Topics will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, and each topic will only be handed out to one team. Teams working on survey topics may receive links to selected starting literature, however, we irrespectively expect that the teams’ final reports will go significantly beyond summarizing the initial references provided by us; in fact, we expect teams to provide a synopsis of relevant literature in the field, potentially support their claims through expert interviews if appropriate and feasible, and through the use of available data.
Seminar reports (30 pages, Times New Roman font, 12’’, double-spaced, excluding references and appendices) must be handed in electronically via Turnitin until January 2019. Teams will present their research (-.ppt presentation) for 75 minutes (including Q&A) on one of the seminar dates (14-16 January 2019) and will attend ALL other team presentations during the seminar.

Please note that TURNITIN will be used in order to test all written coursework (e.g. seminar papers) for possible plagiarism.
