The project may be company-sponsored or proposed by students. The primary  purpose of the project is to provide the student with real-life opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge and skills. However, as the project also has the objective to provide assistance and add value to the business and social organizations, USA will appreciate if the company would acknowledge this by sponsoring the student  project. It is specially mentioned here that co-operation of business, social, non- profit and public sector organizations to finance projects will be highly appreciated. It is also expected that the final projects will be conducted with rigor and that the reports will achieve ever higher standards of applied research. The reports should be of publishable standard. The students are expected to obtain the following benefits from the final project:    An opportunity to apply the knowledge acquired in the classroom.    Ability to recommend solutions to real-life problems.    Interpretation and decision making in diverse and often conflicting socioeconomic and business circumstances.    Critical evaluation of the existing stock of knowledge in a particular academic field and identify venues for improvement.    Better understanding of the industry  –   size, players, dynamics and history.    Knowledge of a firm ’s  strategies and implementation.    Developing project management skills.    Developing skills in problem identification and analysis.    Preliminary knowledge, training and experience for consultancy.    Developing skills in data collection, analysis, and interpretation.    Developing networking and negotiating skills.  Page 4  of 20   2.   Stage I --- Graduating Classes Spring, Summer, And Fall 2015 The students will prepare project reports after the completion of the course work.
