Engineering students emphasize teamwork in business plan competition

An assignment to create a business plan proved educational in a number of ways, say students in professor Zbigniew Pasek’s second-year course, “Engineering Management and Globalization.”

The students worked in almost 40 teams of three or four to devise a product, set an organizational structure, develop manufacturing, marketing and financial plans, and present the results Thursday to instructors, classmates, and a team of judges from the Centre for Enterprise and Law.
