Differences Between Academia and Working World with Problems and Reporting Results
Business problems and communication in the business working world can and do differ from what business students encounter in the classroom. This paper examines the reasons for the differences and offers recommendations to address these differences. Differences are based on the focus; either learning or productivity. Recommendations to address these differences are using true working world scenario problems and the student providing action e-mails containing a solution to the problem in upper division courses.
