The individual assignment is worth 30% of your final grade.

Each student will be expected to submit an individual assignment of 2,000 words in their Week 8 tutorials and via Turnitin. The required format for the assignment is an ESSAY. The topic is as follows:

Choose and collect two newspaper or periodical articles that have relevance for international firms from developed markets doing business in emerging/developing markets.

Your chosen articles must be published between 23rd June and 11th August 2014 in one of the following newspapers or periodicals:
The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, The Australian Financial Review, The Wall Street Journal (US edition), Business Review Weekly, The Economist

Based on your articles you should address the following points within your essay:
1. What are the implications for international firms doing business within an emerging/developing market? Do you consider the legal, political, cultural and economic differences between home and host countries to be important considerations for international firms?

2. In your opinion, what is the most relevant macro-environment factor for an international business when choosing to internationalise into an emerging/developing market? Discuss any international business concepts or theories that could be used to help justify your answer.
Include copies of both articles (either the original ‘cut-outs’ or a print out of the article from the newspaper’s website) as appendices to your assignment.

Your essay should incorporate at least 12 different references. These can be sourced from the following:
• Academic articles
• Relevant textbooks
• Periodicals
• Newspapers
• Relevant online sources

The 12 references should be evenly balanced between these five resource options. Examples of all of these reference options are detailed on pages 4-5 of this guide.

Students are expected to maintain an appropriate standard in presenting their essay Remember to acknowledge your sources throughout the paper using the Harvard referencing system. The report is to be typed and 1.5 spaced (a standard 12 point font should be used). It should be checked for spelling, consistency and clarity of expression.

No extensions will be granted. Late tasks will be accepted up to 72 hours after the submission deadline. There will be a deduction of 10% of the total available marks made from the total awarded mark for each 24 hour period or part thereof that the submission is late (for example, 25 hours late in submission – 20% penalty). This penalty does not apply for cases in which an application for unavoidable disruption is made and approved.
