How to write the report- instructions-
1)the basic instructions as to how to write the report are mentioned above but it is important to make sure that all these rules are taken into consideration and that the material I have provided above is used and each reading is connected somehow according to the guidelines above.
2)it is very important to stick to the readings I have provided only
3)Inclusion of all readings/articles put above is mandatory. Besides all the readings I have posted, it will be good if there is some connection with the current news going on throughout the article. ( eg Covid or International Business/The great financial crisis of 2008)
- The word limit is 2000 words.
- The report should look as if it somehow all connected.
- The report should be full of qualitative and quantitative data.
- There is no need to include an introduction or a formal conclusion the whole report should stick to the material and should look connected. It is a report of the articles not an essay. However, each topic should be summarized properly.
- Build connections, give examples- show your reflection and understanding of the course material. ( enhance the report by giving examples)
