This assignment is meant to accompany the episode of CNBC's Titans on Milton Hershey. This product includes a graphic organizer and answer key. In this activity students will watch the episode and identify examples of the functions of a business for Hershey's. The functions of business included in this activity are: production, procurement, marketing, management, finance, and accounting. As you watch the episode, periodically pause the video and allow students to pair and share their findings, then have a class discussion to check for understanding. A teacher key is provided to aid discussion.
This activity is a great addition to numerous business-related courses. I use this episode when we talk about functions of a business and business ownership.
Summary of Show from CNBC's Titans: "Hershey. Few words sound sweeter. But behind the mouthwatering chocolate is a man, Milton S. Hershey, whose obsessive search for the perfect confectionery turned a pastoral Pennsylvania town into the candy making capital of the world. From a state-of-the-art medical center, to a sprawling amusement park, Hershey, Pa, is living proof that a single company can build a utopia built on the foundation of milk and sugar."
