LHC 489 Business and the Public Policy Process - Thesis
  3 hours Core Terms Offered: F13
  Advisory Prerequisites: LHC 488 
  Business and the Public Policy Process – Thesis --- Together with the Carson Scholars program, LHC 488, this course serves as a capstone experience for the Michigan Ross BBA experience. It offers students from the Carson Scholars program the opportunity to conduct in-depth research on a public policy issue in support of the University of Michigan’s dedication to “serving leaders committed to serving the public good.” [Provost Phil Hanlon]. During Fall and the early part of Winter semester of their senior year, students will prepare a thesis. They will also present their findings at a poster session following Spring Break. An Award will be given for the best thesis. Students will be encouraged, but not required, to pursue publication of their thesis.

This course will further students’ research, writing, and analytical skills. It requires independent work, supported by small group sessions, blog interactions, and one-on-one meetings with the course instructor.
