Group projects? No problem!
While being at Marshall for more than two years, I’ve had my fair share of group projects. With the strong emphasis on teamwork that mirrors the team structure of many businesses, Marshall trains its students to be able to adapt to different types of people and different ways of thinking.
For example, I’ve been assigned several case studies in my Marshall classes where I work with a group of 4 or 5 people to analyze a situation, identify the problems, and assess the possible alternatives.
In my accounting classes, I’ve had to do several team presentations that require not only good content, but good delivery.
In two and a half years here at USC, I’ve dealt with both hard-working groups and unmotivated groups. Some projects have been a breeze, while others a struggle. But overall, these experiences working in groups better prepares us for the real world where we will be forced to work in teams consisting of many different personalities and communication styles.
