Instructions on Assessment:


With reference to appropriate models, theories, frameworks, and academic literature, you are required to respond to the following in the form of a digital academic poster:


You are to choose a MNC and one of its subsidiary countries that you are familiar with to illustrate the challenges an ‘expatriate’ manager will face in the chosen host country in comparison to the parent country, you are to provide appropriate recommendations to overcome these challenges. The academic poster will illustrate knowledge and application of appropriate models, frameworks, and theory but also be esthetically pleasing with the use of colour, imagery and imagination to represent the chosen country.


The word count for this piece of work is 800-1200 words and it is weighted at 100% of the overall mark.


Note that you should include in text citation and a reference list in your poster.



Word limits for assignments


Please note, in text citations [e.g. (Smith, 2011)] and direct secondary quotations [e.g. “dib- dab nonsense analysis” (Smith, 2011 p.123)] are INCLUDED in the word count.


Summarising and compressing the information in your assignment into the word limit is one of the skills that students are expected to acquire and demonstrate as part of the assignment process.


Submission of Assessment:


All assignments must be submitted via the Turnitin Dropbox on the hand-in date notified at the beginning of this brief.   It is advisable to retain a copy of your assignment for you own records. Your mark and feedback will be made available to you electronically once the internal moderation process has taken place, you should note that at this stage marks are still subject to external examiner and academic board approval.


Referencing your work:


In this institution the Harvard method of referencing is used.


The Harvard method of referring to publications and of arranging references uses the author’s name and the date of the publication. References are listed at the end of the text in alphabetical order by author’s name. The general format of a journal reference is shown below:


Smith, J. (1999) How to succeed! Journal of Entrepreneurs , 1(2), p. 34-56


Author’s name and initials are listed first, followed by year of publication in brackets. Then there is the title of article and the journal where article appears, which is underlined or in italics. Finally, state the volume and issue Number (in brackets) along with the pages where article can be located.


A short guide to Harvard referencing will also be available on the Sunspace site under the module assessment navigation button.


Academic Integrity and Misconduct:


Your attention is drawn to the University’s stated position on plagiarism. THE WORK OF OTHERS, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE ASSIGNMENT MUST BE ATTRIBUTED TO ITS

SOURCE (a full bibliography and/or a list of references must be submitted as prescribed in the assessment brief).


Please note that this is intended to be an individual piece of work. Action will be taken where a student is suspected of having cheated or engaged in any dishonest practice. Students are referred to the University regulations on plagiarism and other forms of academic irregularity. Students must not copy or collude with one another or present any information that they themselves have not generated.
