The students must create and run a business, recording their activities and reporting on them in the context of operations management processes at the end of the course. They must generate a profit. They then use the profit at the end of the course to support a local charitable organization that the group selects. The students usually select an orphanage or children's cancer hospital to support.
I love the high level of energy and commitment. This is Project-Based Learning, a type of experiential learning, at its best.
