When I first thought about China, I thought more about the ancient history… and so I expected to see more of the cultural things and not such a modern city. Lauren Schmitz, Sophomore, Civil Engineering, Spring 2015

Experience Tomorrow, Today

At the China Institute, we’re committed to providing students with unique education abroad opportunities. That’s why you can spend 14 weeks during the fall 2017 semester gaining an international perspective for today’s job market. As you learn from UD professors, international professionals and prominent leaders in innovation, you’ll advance your résumé – and enrich your future career. Plus, in just one semester during the fall 2017 program, students from any major can earn an interdisciplinary minor* in Studies in Design and Entrepreneurship in China!

Studies in Design and Entrepreneurship in China

The Studies in Design and Entrepreneurship in China minor is a brand-new minor only available to students studying at the China Institute during the fall 2017 semester. This minor will provide students with an interdisciplinary educational opportunity to explore China from the perspectives of art, philosophy, sociology, business and design.

The courses** included in this minor are: 

  • SSC 200: Social Science Integrated – Socioeconomic Change in China
  • PHL 320: Philosophy and Art
  • MGT 318: Fundamentals of New Venture Creation
  • EGR 299: Engineering Innovation and Design

This 12-credit hour minor will be included on University of Dayton transcripts issued to students who successfully complete the program. Students are also eligible to take up to six additional credit hours of coursework not contained within this minor. The culmination of this minor will result in a capstone-style project. In additional to the courses, students will participate in cultural and historical excursions and corporate site visits. Experiential learning opportunities may also be available. For more information on this minor, please contact us at udci@udayton.edu.

*Pending academic unit approval

**Students not pursuing this minor may also enroll in these courses during the fall 2017 program

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 Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 terms, 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’ 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. Michelle Chapman (Ohio), Andy Smith (Ohio), Tom Kieffer (China) and Kieth Sinram (China) are the clients in this competition.

  • Students will read 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 two key Asian markets: China and Thailand.

  • More details about both the project and the company will be introduced by senior leadership in planned events in the Fall and Spring.

  • Teams can be formed as part of coursework or independently.

Teams will work on their analyses during Fall 2017 and 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: 

Consulting Project Registration Form (Coming Spring 2018)

UD Consulting Project (PPT)

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 16, 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 20 teams (first come, first entered, based on time of registration) can compete in the project.

  • Registration opens on January 15, 2018 and closes on February 16, 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

  • All teams should read the background materials on the Google folder linked above.

  • 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.
