CSU MBA 5101 Unit Assignments

Unit I Essay
Each company has a different culture that dictates how it is governed or operated by its leaders. Given the differences in cultures, even companies with similar models of governance can operate in very distinct and different ways. Exploring the theory on governance can give insight into your company.
For this essay, you will conduct research in order to contrast agency theory and stewardship theory in corporate governance. In your essay, be sure to address the following comments:
• What are the responsibilities of top management and leaders in relation to corporate governance and strategic planning? What are the benefits of strategic management?
• What are the roles and responsibilities of the board of directors? Please provide an example of a board of directors that did, or did not meet its responsibilities to the company.
• Explain the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and its impact on corporate governance. How has it changed the way leaders do business in the United States?
• Conclude with a discussion of the ways the strategic audit helps corporate governance.

Your essay should be at least two pages in length, double-spaced, and in 12 pt. Times New Roman font. The title and reference pages do not count towards the minimum page length. To complete this assignment, a minimum of three reputable sources must be used, cited, and referenced. At least one reference must come from the CSU Online Library. Other good sources are public libraries, Google Scholar, and academic websites. The CSU Online Library offers several research resources and tutorials on subject research guides and accessing the library. You can also reach out to the librarians at library@columbiasouthern.edu .

Unit II Mini Project
SWOT Analysis
Based on your research, and after reading the unit lesson, create a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis for the company you chose to research for this assignment. Please note the importance of picking a company with enough information and sources to support your analysis. Your chosen company can be used throughout the assignments in this course, with the exception of the case study in Unit VII, or you may choose different companies. These assignments allow for a truly comprehensive business analysis, similar to what you would conduct when working for a major company.
Your analysis must identify the company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Use Microsoft Word and create four sections for your paper using the SWOT categories as your headings. Additional headers, such as an introduction, company background, and conclusion, are acceptable. Add a title page and references page.
Each SWOT category should have approximately 200-300 words describing the issues and the company’s strategic philosophy that fall within that area. The total length should be at least three pages. The opportunities and threats should each have at least ten items identified.

Unit III PowerPoint Presentation
In 1970, Milton Friedman wrote an article titled “The Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase its Profits” that sparked a debate about corporate responsibility that remains heated to this day. Read the Schwartz and Saiia article, “Should Firms Go ‘Beyond Profits’? Milton Friedman versus broad CSR1,” pages 1-10, in order to gain a perspective on Mr. Friedman’s views on corporate responsibility.
In addition to the Schwartz and Saiia article, read Archie Carroll’s “The Pyramid of Corporate Social Responsibility: Toward the Moral Management of Organizational Stakeholders.”
Both articles are available in the Business Source Complete database in the CSU Online Library.
These articles will help you develop an understanding of their business and ethical principles. You are encouraged to conduct additional research about Friedman and Carroll using outside sources.
Compare the theories of Freidman and Carroll, and create a PowerPoint presentation on your comparative study. Your PowerPoint presentation should include the following elements:
• Slide 1: Title page
• Slide 2: Table of content or objective slide
• Slide 3: A summary of Milton Friedman’s main points
• Slide 4: A summary of Archie Carroll’s main points
• Slide 5: The principles you would like implemented at your current place of work (or where you wish to work in the future), and why you would include them
• Slides 6-7: Two detailed examples of organizations where Friedman’s theories are applied
• Slides 8-9: Two detailed examples of organizations where Carroll’s theories are applied
• Slide 10: Conclusion
• Slide 11: References in proper APA format

Please ensure that every slide has a title at the top explaining what the slide covers. Add citations in proper APA format, use applicable pictures or graphics (with citations), use a slide template, and avoid wordy slides by focusing on bullet points. Remember, this is an academic presentation.

Unit IV Mini Project
EFAS Table
Using the information gathered from your SWOT analysis conducted in Unit II, create an external factor analysis (EFAS) table for the company you researched. Use Microsoft Word, or a similar program, to create your table. It should have five columns. The first column heading should be titled External Factors, the second column should be titled Weight, the third column should be titled Rating, the fourth column should be titled Weighted Score, and the fifth column should be titled Comments.
(EFAS table template/example attached).
1. In the External Factors column, list at least six opportunities you saw in the company you researched. Underneath the opportunities, list at least six threats you saw in the company you researched.
2. In the Weight column, assign an importance factor to each of these issues from 0.0-1.0 (1.0 is most important; 0.0 is least important). These ratings are based on the probable impact on a particular company’s current strategic position. The higher the weight, the more important the factor to the current and future success of the company. You may not be privy to the exact information for this company, so in some cases you will need to use your best judgment. (You will justify your weighting in column five.)
3. In the Rating column, assign a rating factor from 5.0-1.0 (5.0 is Outstanding; 1.0 is poor). These ratings are based on the company’s response to that particular factor. It is your judgment call on how the company is currently dealing with each specific factor. Once again, you may need to make an estimate in this area if you are not privy to all of the information. (You will justify your weighting in column five.)
4. In the Weighted Score column, multiply the weight from column 2 by the rating in column 3 to get the factor’s weighted score.
5. In the Comments column, explain why a particular factor was selected and how its weight and rating were estimated.
6. At the bottom of column 4, add the weighted scores for the external factors. Is the company doing better or worse than others in the same industry? Complete this answer underneath your table.

Format your assignment using APA Style. Use your own words, and include citations and references as needed to avoid plagiarism. Remember to use proper APA formatting and include a reference page.
