Your assignment should not exceed 2,500 words, excluding the reference section, figures and tables. The assignment should contain an examination of the academic literature, the theories, the frameworks and the models that are relevant in addressing either A or B. Academic journals should be your main source of reference. Ad-hoc sources downloaded from the internet will not be acceptable. The above references should provide you with a good start but you are encouraged to read widely. The references attached to each question are not mutually exclusive, they do overlap, and it will help if you also consider some of the other references. Also, use appropriate examples in your assignment of real life business situations and set your work within an international framework.
