Example of an Applied Research Project

Emilio is a business student. In his final year, he and three other classmates worked with a local pizza company to determine which food delivery app would be the most profitable for the restaurant. Emilio and his classmates did a scan of the marketplace, determined which apps were the most downloaded in the area, and the percentage of profit each app took. They made a final presentation to the pizzeria owner with their recommendation.
