BUSI 2701 A and C Fundamentals of International Business
Assignment # 2 ? Business Report: Company Analysis
You are an analyst in the Industry Department of the government of a DEVELOPING nation (for this assignment, the particular country is not important). Like many developing nations, the majority of your workforce is unskilled to semi-skilled, and your country is trying to develop an industrial base which will provide jobs and help raise the standard of living of the population. However, your government is wary of letting foreign companies set up operations in your country that might harm, or treat unfairly, the country, its people or its resources. A number of companies have recently petitioned your government for permission to set up operations in your country. You have been asked by the Minister of Industry to analyse your choice of any one of the companies on the list provided below. As this is an individual assignment, do not collaborate with others in completing the assignment.
? Lockheed Martin
? Subway Restaurants
The Minister is a very busy person so it is important that the report be written in a clear and concise manner. It will be judged on the factual information it contains, the clarity of your argument and the depth of your analysis. Please note that you should not try to gather data which supports only one side or the other of whether or not to give the company permission to proceed. Rather, you should gather all the pertinent data and let your analysis guide you to the best recommendation.
The report is to be seven pages maximum (double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, 2.54 cm margins) plus title page, references and appendices. The title page must contain your name, student number, name of course and professor, date, and the company you have chosen from the list provided. The first half page (maximum) of the report will be an executive summary of the report?s highlights, including your recommendation. The remainder of the pages will cover the material noted in the rubric below with marks allocated as shown. Please number the pages and use the items listed in the rubric as headings in your report.
The report must cite at least six different sources. Information sources could include the globalEDGE Website referred to in the Hill textbook (http://globaledge.msu.edu), Forbes Global 2000 (http://www.forbes.com/global2000/), the company?s own website and annual reports, the list of company databases provided on CU Learn,from business journals, business newspapers, business websites, etc. Be wary of relying too heavily on any one source, especially a company?s own website as they will most certainly put a positive spin on all of the company?s activities. Do not use Wikipedia or the textbook. Ensure that all data is cited. Please use the APA Citation system guidelines. In this report, there should be few, if any, quotes. If you do use a quote, ensure that it is in quotation marks and properly cited. Keep in mind that if a quote is not in quotation marks and properly cited, it is considered plagiarism.
