You will need to submit research paper topic for approval by no later than the end of third week. You have considerable freedom in choosing a topic, with the exception of the topic must apply directly to this class. The requirement is that you choose a topic that requires academic research not business research and that you submit both your paper topic (which should not contain a question) and a full paragraph statement, that statement must contain a research question to be answered or a hypothesis to be tested. Most “why” questions focus more on workplace related issues and business not academic or scholarly research so they seldom are acceptable questions for scholarly research. Simply put your response in the text box.
