The report will demonstrate students ability to research, analyse, evaluate and make recommendations on the alternative future directions of a particular business issue and practice. The report will include recommendations for one of the organisations referred to in the report. Wherever possible this will be the students own organisation. Form Your assessment is to be word-processed using Word, and the style required is as follows: 1.5 spacing, Trebuchet MS 12 point, fully justified text, page numbering centre bottom, 3cm space on all sides. Use bold and 14 point for headings. Double return for new paragraphs, do not indent. Use the Harvard referencing system. References: (not included in your word count) this must include all references in your assessment which are to come from a range of sources. At this level at least 20 different sources are expected. Referencing throughout your assessment and in this section must use the Harvard system correctly. See Referencing the Harvard Way. This is an informal report and should have appropriate section headings, a conclusion and recommendations where appropriate. There is no need for an executive summary, as this is not a formal report. Similarly, lots of numbering is not required in subsections etc. however, you may find it helpful to divide sections with numbers. If you do this, then a list of contents would be helpful. The approach required is a piece of professional, academic work identifying international business issues and practice, relating them to appropriate research and theories, and proposing reasoned solutions in the light of what is expected of you. Any assertions you make must be backed up with relevant, correctly referenced examples throughout. Please remember that your assessment may be made available to other students on the course in an anonymised form for their benefit. All submissions must be made via SOL site. Make sure you submit your work to the correct place BEFORE the hand-in deadline! Work will be marked using the Solent Grade Scale.
