I am submitting the attached report, entitled Would College students be receptive to attending Prince Philip Drive of College of the North Atlantic if they were required to use Apple computers, in accordance with the requirements for MR2300 Business Research, December 2016.

The report shows just how many student would and wouldn’t attend the College of the North Atlantic if they were required to use an Apple computer to complete their programs at Prince Philip Drive. Fifth teen surveys were distributed and returned at a later date. The surveys showed detailed information about how the students felt about this change along with their computer habits. The hypotheses for this topic was that 70% of students would still attend the college with this requirement in place, after the surveys were retrieved it showed that only 53.33% of students felt this way.

As well, the report shows how Prince Philip Drive of College of the North Atlantic will use the survey to help determine the validity of incorporating Apple technology into future program designs.

The research for this project made use of primary and secondary sources, which consist of Internet resource and survey conducted for this particular topic.

SUMMARY

        The research that was conducted will outline how students will feel with installing Apple or Mac computers as a requirement for completing programs at the College of the North Atlantic – Prince Philip Drive Campus.  The form of research that was used to collect the data was an online survey of 15 people with a total of 9 questions.  After all surveys were collected and complied it was clear that 53.33% of people surveyed said that they would still attend if Apple computer systems became mandatory at the campus, while 33.33% said they wouldn’t and 13.33% were unsure.  

        After reviewing all results, it appears that the Prince Philip Drive Campus may not be appealing to as many students for changing the requirements of computer systems to Apple.  The predicted results were 70% of students would be willing to have Apple as a mandatory system.  Even if the percentage of respondent that said yes (53.33%) and the group that was unsure (13.33%) were combined, it still would not add up to the total that was expected.
