1. Participate in class

It may be annoying at first that there are marks set aside solely for participation. However, there is definitely a benefit to this. Participating in class, even if you don’t want to, gives you confidence. You may start out answering questions begrudgingly but end up giving insightful comments and enjoying it. Being a part of a large class discussion will help develop your thinking skills, communication skills, and your self-esteem!

2. Take the presentations seriously

Follow all the rules about how to dress, how to speak, and what content to cover. Again, it may seem unnecessary and mildly annoying but it’s definitely helpful. These guidelines will help you figure out what to wear in various professional settings. It’s also going to help develop your presentation skills (obviously), which is absolutely vital going forward in a business program.

3. Put a lot of effort into the Marketing Plan

The Marketing Plan is a component of the course that you can brag about in real life. When you’re applying for jobs in a business field, employers love hearing that you’ve actually done some aspects of the job already. Put in a ton of effort into this assignment, get an A, and put it on your resume!
