The purpose of all assignments is to facilitate comprehension of the marketing concepts developed each week. The chapter and other readings (which can be accessed through the Course Library) must be read and reviewed first and referred to, before answering the assignment questions.

You will place your name on one of these boards before Saturday, September 8. Your assignments will be team-based beginning with assignment 4 (due September 23.) If you prefer to work individually you must let me know by Saturday, September 8 via email. ALL discussion board posts are INDIVIDUAL.
