Purpose of Case Study Assignments
Case Study assignments require you to analyze real-world information systems topics and provide examples that illustrate how prominent businesses and organizations implement the theoretical concepts you are studying. Case Study assignments provide a broader, integrated, critical thinking process that helps you to expand on and clarify your understanding of the information systems topics.
Be sure to conduct in-depth research on the topics and provide factual details obtained from primary sources that support the case that you are making. It is strongly recommended that you conduct research utilizing the ERAU Hunt Library. The Hunt Library contains a great amount of information on aviation and other topics. A benefit of utilizing the Hunt Library is the availability of the APA style citation/reference tool that is provided when conducting research utilizing the EAGLEsearch feature. This tool can automatically provide the proper APA style formats for citations and references.
