The culmination of the first semester the Management 150A course is a public poster session. It’s a grownup show and tell of projects that student teams have worked on throughout the semester. Each group has invented a hypothetical product and worked on multiple aspects of bringing that product to market. Their final poster presentations sum up their products and business plans. The showcase, featuring posters on easels, lines the stairway on each floor of the Atrium in Knight Hall.

Each class session featured a faculty member guest lecturing on their areas of expertise, including entrepreneurship, marketing, strategy, economics, accounting, operations and supply chain management, finance, and leadership. The students were able to incorporate what they learned into the development of their product, including how to manufacture the product and selecting the target market.

Student teams pitch their products at the poster session.
