Undergraduate marketing students, group projects, and teamwork: The good, the bad, and the ugly?
The ability for students to work within a team environment has long been a skill set prized by most marketing educators and practitioners. What has not been altogether clear is how to best learn such skills. Some educators would argue that along with the "good," there is truly some "bad" and "ugly" inherent in the framework many use to teach teamwork. The authors of this study focus on the use of group projects in the classroom. Results suggest that educators need to reexamine this issue to ensure that marketing students are developing both discipline-related and support skills. © 1999 Sage Publications, Inc.
