MBA/550 Working Capital Management Worksheet Assignment

Week 1

The first week’s assignment focuses on creating a worksheet you can use in planning to gain knowledge about key course concepts and to recognize application of those concepts in the real world. The assignment has three purposes: (A) identify at least five key theoretical concepts from this week’s readings, (B) relate each key concept to its application in an organizational setting, and (C) communicate well-researched information clearly, concisely, and in an organized manner.

Run the “Working Capital Management” simulation to identify examples of five or more key course concepts. Remember that the mind map is a source of these concepts.
