Why
The purpose of this exercise is to pragmatically apply the skills of cost-benefit analysis. Due to the varying levels of experience with CBA, these skills will be applied to a life decision, pursuing a DSW, rather than a policy or program. Although you will be applying these skills to your decision to pursue a DSW, they are parallel to skills you would use in analyzing a policy or program.

What
Use the steps of cost-benefit analysis to reconstruct your decision to pursue a Doctor of Social Work. Delineate your measures or indicators of costs and benefits. Present this information in a simple table using the example from Smartsheet’s Links to an external site.An Expert Gide to Cost-Benefit Analysis Links to an external site., section six, how to calculate costs and benefits as a guide.
In no more than three to four paragraphs discuss (a) which measures were easily quantifiable and which were more qualitative, (b) how you assigned relative weights or degree of importance to each of the costs and benefits, and (c) what the shortcomings are of this method and potential strategies to mitigate these shortcomings.

How
Submit your completed Cost-Benefit Analysis via Canvas.
