Become Fluent in Tomorrow

Since antiquity, China has faced a sustainability crisis. In pre-modern times, emperors could lose the mandate of heaven (the right to rule) if natural disasters or unsustainable land use practices endangered the growing population. Today, China’s compromised environmental quality threatens to destabilize the current Communist Party regime and interrupt its unprecedented record of poverty alleviation. At the same time, China’s creative and prodigious responses to its environmental crisis also promise positive spillover. In the words of Asian correspondent Jonathan Watts, “When a billion Chinese jump, the planet cannot but change its trajectory...”

During the summer 2018 Sustainability in China program, students will take University of Dayton courses and have incredible immersive experiences that will provide them with a unique lens on sustainability in China. Students will consider the tectonics involved when human economic and environmental priorities collide. Students will also travel throughout China in order to better appreciate the diversity of its economy, environment, and people.

Program Dates

The Sustainability in China program will run from May 8 – June 24, 2018. During this time, students will visit a variety of locations in China, including Shanghai, Suzhou, Guilin, Chengdu, Xi’an, Lanzhou, Beijing, and more.

Program Cost

The China Institute is committed to making global experiences affordable for all students. That’s why we’re providing this program at an all-inclusive rate.
Total Program Cost: $15,000
The program cost includes 6-credit hours of tuition, airfare (including connecting flights), Chinese visa costs, housing, program transportation and tours/excursions.

Course Listing

Students may choose to enroll in two of the following three courses:
HST 342: Environmental History (CAP Advanced History, CAP Integrative, and SEE minor requirements)
GEO 208: Environmental Geology (CAP Natural Science, CAP Inquiry, and SEE minor requirements)

Accelerating Market Share in China and Thailand by 2020

Total Prizes Awarded of $10,000 at the Stander Symposium 2018 (sponsored by the University of Dayton):

  • Grand Prize — $3,500

  • Second Place — $2,500

  • Third Place — $1,500

  • Fourth/Fifth Place — $1,250 each

During the Spring 2018 term, University of Dayton students will analyze a global market expansion opportunity for Crown Equipment, a leading manufacturer of materials handling equipment. Founded in 1945, Crown has grown from a small operation to one of the top five largest lift truck manufacturers in the world. The company is still headquartered in its original birthplace of New Bremen, Ohio. Crown is a privately-held company run by the fourth generation of the founders’ -- the Dicke family. Crown products have a reputation for safety, reliability, productivity, and innovation. Crown has eighteen manufacturing facilities located throughout the world. Click here for a video introduction to Crown. Crown Executives, both here in Ohio and in Suzhou, China are the clients in this competition.

  • Students will read some brief background materials provided by UD and conduct additional research. IBISworld, Statista, and Mintel (among others) all contain information relevant to Crown and the industry in which Crown competes.

  • Although very strong in North America, Crown wants to evaluate rapid expansion in a key Asian market - China.   We will try to arrange for participants to get more details about both the project and the company from senior leadership in planned events during Spring term (depending on availability of those execs).

  • Teams can be formed as part of coursework or independently by students of any major(s) and schools at UD.

  • Teams will work on their analyses during the Spring 2018 term and present their results to a panel of judges during the Stander Symposium for the initial round of the project. The 5 teams judged to have the best analysis and presentation will enter the final round and, one week later, will present for the judges again - this time, joined by Crown executives.

Please see below for important links for the 2017-2018 Consulting Project: 


Applicant/Team Eligibility

  • 

    • Teams must consist of 3 to 5 UD undergraduate or graduate students only (any school/major).
    • Teams are considered finalized and cannot add members after February 26, 2018, when the team rosters are due. However, teams can drop in number down to the minimum 3 students (instructors can modify this rule for purposes of class assignments).
    • Students must be in good academic standing with the University throughout the entire project to remain eligible for a prize.
    • A maximum of 15 teams (first come, first entered, based on time of registration) can compete in the project.
    • Registration opens on Feb. 1, 2018 and closes on Feb. 26, 2018.
    • Each team member must present in both the Initial Round and the Final Round.
    • Prize monies will be split equally among team members - no exceptions.
    • By entering, team members agree to allow UD to use their application materials, photos, likenesses and presentations to market, promote and provide information regarding the consulting project.

The Project

Crown executives have centered the case on 7 questions that teams will research & comment on in their presentation:

  • Question 1: How can Crown leverage its strengths to rapidly grow market share?

  • Question 2: Which segments of the market are most attractive?

  • Question 3: How do customers in the targeted regions get information to make buying decisions?

  • Question 4: What strategies would be most effective in overcoming price sensitivity?

  • Question 5: How are buyer behaviors in China and Thailand influenced by technology?

  • Question 6: How could Crown apply the shared economy model to these markets?

  • Question 7: What is the recommended go-to-market strategy?

Assumptions:

  • Mergers & Acquisitions should not be included in recommendations.

  • Recommendations should be based on Crown’s current product and service offerings with no new product development required.

Project Resources & Requirements

  • This is an open-source consulting project. Student teams may use any sources they wish as long as the sources are ethical to use and cited.

  • Teams will craft and present a 15 minute PowerPoint presentation that answers the case questions. The 15 minute time limit is strictly enforced.

  • Presentations must be in PowerPoint only (no Keynote, Prezi, Google Apps or other software).

  • Teams must choose fonts carefully to ensure that slides show the same way on different computers. Common fonts include Arial, Helvetica, Times New Roman and Palatino. If using unusual fonts, copy the font onto the flash drive in order to load it onto our presentation laptop computer just prior to presentation.

  • Each team must also present an executive summary of their recommendations (two pages maximum). Supporting data for your recommendations should be appended & do not count towards the 2 page max.

Evaluation Criteria

Judges will score the presentation on the following criteria:

  • Level of innovation/creativity/originality in the solution(s).

  • Critical thinking and analysis.

  • Quality of the presentation (slides & oral presentation).

  • Coverage of relevant issues/opportunities and thoroughness of analysis.

  • Crown has established no spending limit for this exercise. Students should specifically identify financial drivers to success.

  • Presentations that are composed largely of research results ("What research told us...") are typically not sufficient to win. Presentations must go further to advise Crown on concrete and measurable steps the company should take to rapidly grow market share in China and Thailand.

Additional Rules

  • You do NOT have to use all of your allotted time. Quality is much more important than quantity.

  • ALL presentations must be accompanied by a Works Cited page to show what research was used for the presentation. This Works Cited page will be handed to the judges at the beginning of the presentation. Likewise, 3 copies of the presentation should be provided to judges.

  • ALL charts and graphs must contain a source and date, and all charts and pictures must either be original or used under license. No copy and paste is accepted.

  • For each slide in the presentation, students should carefully consider:  How does this slide support the conclusion or recommendation?

  • Participants are not allowed to contact any employee of Crown or its subsidiaries and affiliates ("Crown") for purposes of conducting research for this consulting project, including any family members who may be or have been employees of Crown. Violations will result in forfeiture from the project (and possibly an 'F' in the assignment if completed as part of a class requirement), as well as an academic misconduct violation.
